Jeanne LaSala Taylor and her new children’s book Just Bunny and the Great Fire Rescue is based on a true story of her daughter's stuffed bunny being rescued from a burning building. This book provides a special thanks to firefighters everywhere for saving lives and stuffed bunnies, too! Jeanne was also rescued from a fire in her apartment building in 2007, and wrote this book in recognition of the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women of the FDNY. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation.
"Just Bunny and the Great Fire Rescue will be part of our fire prevention program for the way it encourages children to respect and trust firefighters everywhere whether it be a large city or a small village. Helping people - and 'bunnies' - is our life's work."
--Chief John Caparelli, Larchmont Fire Department
Jeanne plans to expand Just Bunny into a series highlighting the people and organizations that help keep New York City safe and strong. Although essentially New York-based stories, these books hope to inspire respect and gratitude for firefighters, police officers, and public servants everywhere! Jeanne was recently featured on NY1, BBC Radio, LMCTV, and Larchmont Ledger.
