Apollo student authors debut firefighter book collaboration on June 17
June 10, 2014
Second-graders in Jamie Burcheci’s class at Apollo Elementary School are now published authors.
The students recently worked with Eastside Fire & Rescue firefighter Tim Castner to write and illustrate a book about firefighters called “Nozzlehead: What Firefighters Do.”
The publishers and students will hold a book release and signing celebration from 10:30-11:10 a.m. June 17 at the school, 15025 S.E. 117th St., Renton.
The student’s words and illustrations capture a moment that provides readers an inside look into the world of firefighting in a very educational and endearing way.
Themes of the book include health, wellness, responsibility, compassion, teamwork, fellowship, understanding, order and a sense of community.
