A version of Scarlett's story for kids. This cat saved her 5 kittens from a flaming warehouse that even FDNY wouldn't enter.

    this is the kid's version of the story about Scarlett, the momcat who went back in & out of the crack warehouse fire in NYC over and over to rescue her 5 kittens, got so burned up she couldn't open her eyes for a couple of days, and became famous. animals can be heroes too. if you have kids, this would be good to read to them. and hooray for FF David Gianelli, FDNY, who helped save the cats. a 2nd-grade class at the time (1996), even wrote and produced a play about the events, with him as a character (of course!) maybe they have copies of the script for other schools to use? worth checking out.
