Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
Create a safe plan of action for encountering strangers with the help in this volume of the "What If" series. The book provides suggestions for what kids should do if a stranger approaches. Portraying different scenarios where kids may encounter grown-ups or teenagers they do not know, the book provides tips for each situation coupled with illustrated depictions. The safety tips on each page include checking with parents before talking to or helping a stranger, choosing a family password, and feeling comfortable saying no. It is important for children to know the guidelines for talking to strangers before an encounter were to occur in order for them to feel confident and stay safe. Check the back of the book for additional helpful information such as situational role-playing, a glossary, and further reading. The educational element in the "What If" series serves well for starting the conversation about interactions with strangers at home or in the classroom! Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin

She is currently residing in the Philadelphia area, with her writer-husband, and their 2 sons.
