Most children, especially children on the autism spectrum, accept adults' friendliness at face value. Sometimes it can have tragic consequences. Written by a Deputy Sheriff, this book is credited with foiling at least 22 stranger abductions. Characters Bobby and Mandee explain stranger danger in a way that is accessible, but not frightening, for children. Read it to your child and role-play different scenarios. Create a password only you and your child know, label backpacks on the inside (so strangers won't know your name). Strangers can be men or women, old or young. Adults should not touch, give gifts to, or ask for help from children. If they do, don't keep it a secret! Tell an adult! Arm your child with the knowledge that may save his or her life.

In ‘Bobby and Mandy’s Too Safe For Strangers’, Bobby seems to tell the story. He tells us exactly what a stranger is. They’re anyone we don’t know. A stranger could be a man, woman, a teenager, or even another child! Throughout the book there are many examples of a bad stranger and what a child can do to escape “stranger danger.” In the back of the book is a list of people who can help in case of an emergency, a safety test, a list of safe grownups to call, and a lot more useful information for both you and your child. This is another book that I highly recommend for your home library. Read this book with your child and stress the importance of “stranger danger.” This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
This book has foiled twenty-two stranger abductions to date. This important book stars a big brother, Bobby, and his little sister Mandy. They explain through their own eyes all about strangers. "Who is a stranger, you ask? A stranger is anyone that you do not know." They further go on to explain that a stranger can be anyone you don't know regardless of age or gender. Just because you are brought up by a loving family and taught to respect and be kind to everyone you must only be around people you and your parents know very well. You will meet many strangers throughout your life and most are good people but you always have to be aware and alert to those who are bad. Tips are given about how a stranger may trick and apprehend you such as asking to help find their dog that is lost, offer you candy or free kittens, or lure you into their car. If any of those things occur and you are ever grabbed... "SCREAM! If they still have you after you scream, then KICK, BITE, and FIGHT with ALL YOUR MIGHT. YOU MUST GET AWAY! Then you must run and tell a trusted adult. The book included a list of grown-ups, both men and women, who will help you if there is an emergency, plus tips for parents and a safety test to make sure you understand the exact responses you are to make.
