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.

    WATCH-OUT SERIES

    I PURCHASED THREE SEPARATE SETS OF THESE SERIES ONLINE FOR FOUR OF MY NEPHEWS BIRTHDAYS; THE BOOKS ARE VERY EDUCATIONAL, WELL WRITTEN AND DELIVERED ON-TIME. I FELT I WANTED TO GET THEME SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE STANDARD TOYS, THEY GET PLENTY OF FROM OTHER RELATIVES, TOYS THAT ARE FROM CHINA AND MORE THAN LIKELY, LOADED WITH LEAD PAINT, AND THAT HAVE FLOODED THE MARKET IN MY COUNTRY. WHEN LOOKING THESE BOOKS OVER, I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED TO FIND THAT THEY SAID THAT THEY WERE PRINTED IN CHINA. GOD ONLY KNOWS WHATS IN THE INK.
