Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
"A grown-up you do not know should never ask you for help," warns author Lisa Herrington in this guide for young readers. Children should be aware that adults do not need help with pets, parents won't ask a stranger to pick them up, and even if a stranger knows their name they should not go along. "Scream for help if a stranger tries to grab you," she advises. Children who are "lost or need help should look for a safe place" such as a library, fire station, or YMCA. The photo shows a building with a "Safe Place" sign, but the text does not explain that a place can be safe even if it does not bear such a sign. "A police officer is a good person to ask for help," Herrington suggests, "[but children] can also ask a mom who has kids with her," and readers should talk to a trusted grown-up about other adults who could help. The simple language will enable youngsters to read this on their own, but due to the nature of the content it should be discussed with an adult. The full-color, full-page photographs illustrating each tip show a racially-diverse range of children, and the adult "strangers" are both male and female. From the "Rookie Read-About Safety" series. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—A brief note to parents and teachers at the beginning of each book suggests how to address the topic with a child; for example, in Stranger Safety, the author says, "Make sure your child understands that behavior that would normally be considered unacceptable-such as kicking, biting, and fibbing-is acceptable, even advisable, when dealing with strangers." Each book has bright, clear, contemporary photographs that are attractive, abundant, and relevant to each situation. The large, readable texts include a balance of dos and don'ts. All of the titles conclude with a summary of safety tips and a "Words to Know" section that pictorially represents four important terms having to do with that topic, such as "fire," "firefighter," "smoke alarm," and "toaster" in Fire Safety. Accessible titles to spark discussion.—Maggie Chase, Boise State University, ID
