With fire prevention taught only one week a year in schools, Grace & Friends provides a fun, interactive way for kids to learn about fire safety year-round!

Incredible Storybook Tool
It’s incredible how much of a tool a storybook can be for parents. Throughout Grace’s adventures, she, and her crew learn about the magical things that happen when you create, play instruments, sing, and listen to all kinds of music.
