Overview


Advice in this book focuses on staying in parents’ sight and avoiding getting lost when in large, busy places like stores and theaters. Kids are also instructed to observe safety rules in playgrounds, and to take extra care when encountering adults they don’t know. Clearly written in brief passages that are easy for younger children to absorb and understand, the Watch Out! series of color-illustrated books give kids safety advice that applies inside and outside the home, while they are traveling in a car, and when they are enjoying nature and having outdoor fun. The lessons illustrated in all Watch Out! books help children identify safety issues and avoid potentially dangerous situations. Appealing cartoon-style illustrations on every page.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Each book begins on a positive note, such as how much fun water can be, and then points out safety issues that children are likely to face in the various environments. While not exhaustive for each setting, the books do create awareness that there are dangers that can and should be avoided. Town discusses getting lost, dogs, building sites, etc. Home focuses on stairs, scissors and knives, flames, and so on. Water talks about swimming in pools, the ocean, and rivers; boating safety; and more. Road cautions about staying on the sidewalk, using crosswalks, car safety, etc. Children will profit most from these titles when shared with an adult or in a group so that they can think about the issues, talk about prior experiences, and brainstorm ideas. First graders will be able to read them independently. The texts are well written, posing questions about the various dangers and encouraging readers to think about the best course of action. Detailed color cartoon illustrations include text bubbles. Each book contains a note to caregivers and a list of safety-awareness activities. Good introductory books.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
