I was a know-it-all child, part 5

My Questions book was an odd combination of education and horror. Like a picture of a terrified little girl with her dress on fire alongside text explaining how fires and burns work, and what to do if you catch on fire. It worked, though. This picture stuck in my memory for a long, long time. When our school had the "stop, drop, and roll" campaign, I was all, "yeah, I knew that already."
