The Good Fire Helmet
by Tim Hoppey, illustrated by Lori McElrath-Eslick
Tommy and Christian treasure the firefighter's helmet that once belonged to their dad. The chaplain had told them, "If you just touch your fingers to this fire helmet, its courage can be given to you. A good fire helmet has been known to do that."
Christian believes the helmet makes him brave when he gets a shot a the doctor's office and wards off scary shadows at night, but his big brother isn't so sure. Tommy's real test of courage comes the day Christian falls into the creek and is swept downstream, along with the helmet. Tommy draws on memories of his dad—and the courage he finds inside himself—to rescue his brother.
Author Tim Hoppey was inspired to write The Good Fire Helmet after witnessing the bravery of two young sons of a fallen firefighter and realizing the courage all kids need in everyday life.
Proceeds from this book benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
