Synopsis

Out and About by Claire Llewellyn

This entertaining book covers basic issues of safety outside the home. Thus it looks at what to do if a child gets separated from adults in a public place, knowing who to ask for help, keeping safe in parks and playgrounds and avoiding potentially dangerous places like building sites. 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 outdoors.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 for 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.
