Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An amazing amount of clear, common-sense information is packed into this safety book for parents and others working with children from infant to high-school age. Chapters focus on identification, on school and street safety, on caregivers, on medical, fire, recreational, cycle, and transportation safety, on sexual abuse, and more. All have checklists and additional current resources. Drugs are not covered, but good sources for information on this subject are included. Because of the checklist format, parents will perhaps prefer to purchase this, but public libraries will find it useful, too.-- Annette V. Janes, Hamilton Lib., Mass.
