Safety is our most basic human need. As such, we must teach children about the fundamentals of safety as early as possible. Young children are often unaware of how to be safe in circumstances other than not to talk to strangers, look both ways when crossing the street, know their parents’ names and phone numbers, and other primary safety rules. In full-color illustrations and easy-to-read text, Be Safe and Mighty offers a gentle approach to engage the precious youth in your life to learn ways to be safe in their environments: personal, home, school, and community.
In today’s eventful world, it is necessary to secure time and space for discussions with young children that serve to strengthen their protection from harm, and to help them develop new habits that fortify their physical and psychological functioning. Each explanation of safety in this book will enable restorative, critical conversations about thoughts, feelings, and choices essential for preparing a child to put safety first.
Parents, educators, and caregivers will value this content as a social-emotional learning resource for home and school. Children will gain awareness and confidence, knowing that they are better prepared to protect themselves from harm or danger proactively.
The book also features a reader’s reflection and a list of conversation starters to aid the process of communicating the information in this text with early school-age children, ages 5-8.
