In a straightforward format, the author explains the various kinds of safety from physical to cyber-safety. The book is unusual in that children are encouraged not only to seek the help of a trusted adult when necessary, but also learn to rely on their inner voices and themselves to keep safe. Written in a non-threatening way, the book is a great conversation starter in the classroom as well as at home. Fourth book in the What Does It Mean To Be...? series - a great collection for personal and school libraries.

Absolutely love this book! Every single title in this series of books should be at the top of your children's reading list! Author, Rana DiOrio, captures the importance of child safety in easy to understand illustrations and text. It also instills confidence and awareness for children to trust their instincts as well as seeking advice of their parents. This truely should be required reading! Simple, yet brilliant!

This is a charming little book with lovely illustrations. My youngest son is 12, but developmentally more like a 6-8 year old. The world can be very dangerous for people with developmental delay and we are always looking for ways to help him learn to protect himself without scaring the crap out of him. This book is short, never scary, not condescending, and helped me have a substantive conversation with my son about staying safe.

In this story a young boy contemplates what it means to be safe. He recalls being called safe as he played baseball. Then maybe if he was locked up in his room he would be safe. But this is not the kind of safe they are talking about in this book. Safe is making right decisions not letting peers persuade you into doing something you know is not safe. Keeping information like your address, phone number and other private information that could lead to an unsafe situation and more.* * *Stated in the description of about this series:Physical safetyEmotional safetySocial safetyCyber safetyIt explores in unthreatening ways that spark meaningful conversation between adults and children about staying safe.* * *It is necessary to discuss the dangers our children may face when a trusted adult is not around to guide the child. Even the smallest child needs to be safe. This book will help without scaring or threatening the child.The author writes this story so they can understand and along with the illustrations they will be able to relate to the different situations and hopefully keep them in mind if ever a similar situation occurs.I really appreciate the Green fact the publisher states, "We print and distribute their materials in an environmentally-friendly manner, using recycled paper, soy inks, and green packaging."I highly recommend this book.Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Little Pickle Press for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my honest opinion.

This book was useful in teaching my 2nd grade students about stranger danger, internet safety, and other concerns regarding their well-being. My students are far more aware of their safety without becoming paranoid.

With a straightforward,age-appropriate message and engaging illustrations, the meaning of how children can be safe in school, at home and at play is revealed. As in her other 3 books in the What Does It Mean to Be...? series, the author, Rana DiOrio, has captured the essence of a significant timely issue in a delightful children's book that opens up excellent opportunities for meaningful discussion and learning. This book is a wonderful addition for libraries and a great gift for the children you love.
