This Level C "Rookie Reader" contains rhyming stanzas that advise kids to wash their hands, avoid eating wild berries or sitting in wet paint. In soft illustrations, multi-ethnic children clutch adults' hands, climb trees carefully, sit correctly in chairs, tie their shoes, wear bike helmets, and buckle their seatbelts. The cautionary advice blends perfectly with the muted art. The overall message shifts the text's emphasis away from "don't do this" to an upbeat ending: "Always be safe in whatever you do. Nothing is quite as important as you." This is an important, educational book for any library or home school collection.

We know that school bus drivers are very well-trained, but they do not have control over other driver's actions.  Because of this, communication between the students and the driver is very necessary.  In this video, Bobby, a third grader, copes with some events where he is treated with a lack of respect by some other students.  On his third day at school, he is excited about a good report from his teacher and is eager to share it with his mother.  Unfortunately, Bobby makes a big mistake when he does not follow the instructions for crossing safely in front of the bus.  A distracted driver ignores safety procedures, and Bobby is hit by the car.  While Bobby's friends and classmates wait to learn about the outcome, viewers have time to reflect on the importance of following safe procedures.  A joint venture between the Ohio Association of Pupil Transportation and The Broken Toy Project, this color unrated educational drama on DVD features students from the Worthington City Schools.  This intense, disturbing film makes it a good discussion-starting tool for children fifth grade, and under.  While the procedures followed in the film are based on Ohio rules, students and drivers in all states can benefit from viewing this film.

Dottie Raymer's Staying Home Alone prepares kids for those times when they have the house all to themselves.  It emphasizes safety, but the tone is not didactic.  Instead, important information is made kid-friendly through engaging graphics and an accessible format, with lots of sidebars.  The opening chapter, which addresses house rules and assesses a young person's readiness for this new responsibility, is especially helpful.  Additionally, there are chapters on dealing with siblings, handling tricky situations, and knowing who to call for specific emergencies.  Lauren Scheuer's cartoon illustrations reflect the target audience, which are middle-school girls, but boys, too, will find this an valuable guide.
