Missing Kid Alert
Books for Teaching Children Safety

Safety Made Fun With Books and Reading Time

All too often kids are left to their own muses because parents have a hard time finding things to occupy their minds and their energy levels. Reading books with your kids is a great way to spend time with them and they can actually learn something other than how the story ends.

These children’s books offer more than a fun story to read – they instill safety in your child’s mind and can be used as a great way to entertain, teach and learn all at the same time.

The Swimsuit Lesson by John Holsten

This book gives you powerful information to read with your child – helping you talk to them and telling them what they need to know. It was written by a retired police sergeant that specialized in child sex crimes investigations.

The book focuses on simple and effective ways to educate your child about the dangers of sexual abuse. Empowering them with knowledge is one of the best ways to keep them from becoming a victim – but it is more often than not, a hard subject to broach with your children.

I Won’t Go with Strangers by Dagmar Geisler

This carefully written story starts with a young girl being offered rides home because her parents are late. It covers both well-meaning people and one that is not so friendly. The story shows her thought process as she considers options and declines rides from all of the individuals.

It does an excellent job of teaching stranger danger while emphasizing that not all strangers are bad. This is a lesson that is often hard to teach as it is confusing for young children but teaches them what to do regardless of whether or not they know the stranger’s intentions.

Good Pictures Bad Pictures Jr.: A Simple Plant to Protect Young Minds by Kristen Jenson

Pretty much any conversation surrounding potential ‘bad people’ involve talking to your kids about the need to get away if they are shown inappropriate images. This one is a difficult conversation because how do you show them what images are OK and when they should tell you or know they are in danger?

It’s not that easy without actually showing them an image that you are telling them no one should show them. This book is an excellent tool to help you with that conversation and is best suited for children ages 3-6 years old. It teaches them to Turn, Run & Tell when they are exposed to inappropriate images.

It does a great job of helping your child understand the difference between good and bad images they may be exposed to and teaches them what to do if they are.
