By Alison Feigh. Illustrated by Laura Logan. This thoughtfully written picture book teaches seven basic rules for personal safety using a positive and nonthreatening tone. Eschewing scare tactics, the book presents confident young characters who model safe practices such as using the "check in" rule and trusting gut instincts. Each safety rule is put in the context of something a child is imagining. For example, a boy pretends that he is an airplane. Just like a plane checks in with the control tower before leaving, he knows he should talk to his caregiver before going anywhere. Advice for adults about how to help kids stay safe is included. Grades K–3. 10" x 8". Free Spirit. 32 pages. ©2008.
