Gr 1-2-The book offers safety tips for home, school, and play. It is a curriculum-driven title that is part of a series designed especially for parents and teachers to participate in a shared reading experience with a child. The adult reads the more advanced text on the left-hand page, followed by the child reading the text opposite. Unfortunately, the language is uninspiring and the photos are unappealing. The "Parent's Introduction" states that "Reading aloud is one of the most important activities parents can share with their child to assist their reading development." They would be better served by sharing Peggy Rathmann's Officer Buckle and Gloria (Putnam, 1995), discussing all the safety tips, and creating new ones.-Pamela K.

Offers basic safety advice for home, school, and play on each left-hand page with a more simple text on the facing page to allow for a shared reading experience between adults and children.
