Synopsis

Near Water by Claire Llewellyn

This entertaining book covers basic issues of safety on or near water. Thus it looks at such things as why water can be dangerous, care near garden ponds and in swimming pools, swimming at the seaside, and safety near rivers and while boating. Simple, clear text by an expert writer for the very young addresses the child reader directly and poses open questions that encourage him or her to think about the issues in their own context. Thus it will help to foster a sense of responsibiity for their own safety near water. The delightful illustrations by a highly successful illustrator provide many further opportunities for discussion between adult and child readers. Checked by a consultant in safety education, notes for parents, teachers and carers suggest ways to use the book and activities that will help to consolidate the lessons learned from it. The book is completed by a list of further resources that will help extend children's learning.
