Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Too Safe For Strangers by Deputy Sheriff Robert Kahn and Sharon Chandler

This is a Children's Safety Book.   This book tells children how to deal with strangers.   The "stranger danger" campaign seems to have disappeared but the problem has not.  

The authors clearly describe and define a stranger.  They are very clear on strategies for behavior if a child is approached by a stranger.   They list the more common methods predators use to approach children.  As in their book on bullies, their primary defense is to tell a trusted adult.   They list trusted adults.    The authors use repetition and illustrations to demonstrate their strategies and their scenarios.  The protective strategies are clear and easy to explain. 

I think the author's use of tests and suggestions for role playing are excellent.   As a former teacher and current kindergarten volunteer and I see how successfully repetition is for the younger child.

I recommend.  


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
