“This book is informative, up-to-date and is set up to encourage parents and children to learn together by role-playing helpful responses. Ultimately, the goal is that children (and parents) will feel empowered in an emergency, not scared.”

“I think that kids my age (7) should read this book. If they have a frisky little sister like me, they’re going to babysit her soon and they will need to know these things.”
