This is a wonderful book! I got this book for my daughter last year (she's now 4) and she is able to fully grasp what is okay and not okay regarding strangers. She likes to repeat things, and the verbiage of the rules is perfect!

Format: Hardcover
There are two parts to this book. In the first part, Ashley, the little girl on the cover, loses her mom in a store. She finds a security guard and the manager calls her mom to the office. Everything is happy. Then when they get home, the second half of the book starts and it's completely unrelated to the first part of the book. Ashley's mom & dad talk to her about strangers and write a poem to help her remember some rules about never talking to strangers.

So let me summarize: If you get lost, go talk to a stranger to tell them you're lost. Then your parents tell you to never talk to strangers ... which they just told you to do if you get lost. But you're not supposed to talk to strangers.

What a worthless book. The only reason it's popular is because of the author.

My daughter's name is Ashley and she also has red hair so it will be cool when she can read to have her associate this with herself.
