A Kid's Guide to Staying Safe

Recently, I was asked to endorse What Would You Do? A Kid's Guide to Staying Safe in a World of Strangers (Headline Books) written by Melissa Ridenour. It was a pleasure to do so, and now I'll share that review with you

Obviously, there is a need for this information. A copy of this book arrived the same day that my stepgranddaughter told me she was learning about ‘safe touch’ at school. She had a difficult time explaining what she had learned, and since she is an A student, there must have been some flaw in how the material was presented. Written so children can understand without feeling panic, What Would You Do: A Kid’s Guide to Staying Safe in a World of Strangers is the way I prefer my grandchildren learn about being safe.

“From understanding how to use Caller ID, setting a family code word, establishing an ICE (In Case of Emergency) list of safe people, to knowing what to do if a stranger comes calling, this book has everything a child needs to know about staying safe whether on the Internet, phone, or at home. With puzzles, quizzes, and a checklist to empower parents, this is a great handbook to help children discover their own answers to personal safety issues. This should be required reading for elementary schoolchildren.
