Shawn and Flash
Prepare Their Community For Fire Season
by Melanie Stutt

Shawn couldn’t be more excited for his summer holidays to begin. But when wildfires threaten his rural community, it sure puts a damper on the fun. Worried about the future, Shawn sets out to visit his old friend Flash the weasel. Flash and the rest of the weasels show Shawn how they work together to prepare their community and keep it resilient through wildfire season. Shawn is inspired by what he learns—but can he take that knowledge back to his own community, and help to reduce the impacts of this fire season? Shawn and Flash takes a lighthearted approach to a big problem. Youth have the power to make change; they need to know just how much impact one individual can have. This book shows them how to take action, and reminds them that they hold the power of change within them. We are in this together, and together we are stronger.

This part is still in the works. I will provide this asap as it comes available.
