Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Be Careful and Stay Safe will give your little ones the confidence necessary to make the right decisions in tough situations.”—Arizona Parenting

Children's Literature
Be Careful and Stay Safe by Meiners is part of the “Learning to Get Along” series. This book primarily shows examples of how kids can be safe--from safely using items in the kitchen to not talking to strangers. The text is very vague, giving general guidelines that kids should follow. This vagueness would be lost if not for some very clear pictures. For example, the text reads “If I don’t know someone or if I don’t feel comfortable, I can ignore the person and walk away.” This is a general statement of what a child can do when they see a stranger and do not want to interact with that stranger. The picture is of a man in a car, leaning out the window trying to talk to two kids. These pictures are a bit on the generic side with heavy black lines outlining minimal shades of colors. However, this helps present a clear picture for kids who need to think in general terms when trying to figure out the vague text about safety. The book also includes a “S.A.F.E.” plan. (Stay away from danger. Ask for help. Follow directions and use things carefully. Emergencies-have a plan!) There are multiple activities that would be useful for parents and teachers alike. Although most kids would not pick up this book on their own, it is a valuable tool for adults to use to begin a safety discussion with their kids. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
