Is That a Good Guy or a Bad Guy?

Dennis Jr. was walking along with his mother and his sister, daydreaming as usual. This time he was Mr. Good Guy, a superhero protecting the world from harm.
They were heading to school for his first field trip. But first, they had to drop off his little sister.
When they walked into child care to drop off Lindsey Lou, he saw a man standing alone in the corner.
Dennis Jr. pulled his mother's arm and asked, "Is that a good guy or a bad guy?"
His mother smiled and said, "I don't know, he is a stranger."
He heard the word stranger and decided he must be a bad guy.
Dennis Jr. forgot all about the man by the time his class arrived at the alligator park. He had so many new things to look at and he did his best to look at all of them.
Soon, he noticed a little boy and an older man throwing food into the alligator pit.
He ran up to them and asked if he could throw some food too. The man said, "Sure." They all walked along the boardwalk together, talking and laughing. They were having so much fun.

Wonderful story line. It's a lesson every child needs to learn. We often forget how children see things through innocent eyes. Illustrations were playful and colors were eye catching. What kid or even adult doesn't like superheroes? Highly recommended hope to see more from this author.
Amazing! My son loves this book! He's almost 7 and very friendly so this story helps teach him to be careful around strangers. This book has great pictures and is perfect for today's families with working parents. I give this book an A+! My son LOVES it and so do I! This is the best children's book ever!
With 2 kids I am always talking to them about wondering off and not to approach are leave with any strangers. With this book I was able to discuss the dangers and better educate them from getting in harms way. The pictures and characters had their attention on every page.
This is the perfect book to begin the conversation about the dangers of bad guys, and still entertain! My son loves the colorful pictures, he should, he loves super heroes!
My daughter loves this book! After I finished reading it to her, she asked about a woman who came up to her the day before. She asked me if that woman could have been a bad guy. I was so happy to answer her questions. After that she carried the book around the house with her looking at the pictures!
