Editorial Reviews

About the Author

"This is a book I wish I had had for my kids when they were young!" says author Irene van der Zande. Irene has been featured as a child safety expert by USA Today, CNN, and The Wall Street Journal. She is also the author of "Bullying: What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe"; of "The Kidpower Book for Caring Adults: Personal Safety, Self-Protection, Confidence, and Advocacy for Young People"; and of the "Kidpower Older Kids Safety Comics: An Introduction to "People Safety" for Older Children Ages 9-13 and Their Adults." In addition, Irene is the founder of Kidpower.org, a non-profit organization that has helped to protect over two million people of all ages and abilities from bullying, sexual abuse, abduction, and other violence since 1989 through providing workshops, consultation, and educational resources.

More About the Author

In 1985, when her family was young, Irene van der Zande protected a group of small children, including her own two, from a man who was threatening to kidnap them. Even though she stopped this attack by yelling and by ordering a bystander to help, this frightening experience left her with a determination to do everything in her power to keep her own kids safe - and all children safe- and finally, to help everyone, everywhere, learn how to use their own power to take charge of their emotional and physical safety.

Today, Irene is an international expert in personal safety, a prolific author, and an inspiring trainer. As the founder and executive director of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, known as Kidpower for short, Irene has been a tireless leader in protecting and empowering children, teens, and adults around the world for a quarter of a century.

Kidpower is a nonprofit leader in child protection and personal safety that has protected over 2 million people of all ages and abilities from bullying, violence, and abuse through educational resources, in-person workshops, and consulting. Kidpower's newest global initiative is the "One Million Safer Kids campaign, which has the goal of making at least one million young people safer from bullying, violence, and abuse through greater awareness, action, and skills by July 1, 2016.

The Kidpower Trash Can is a big favorite.

I have watched even very young children use the skills in this book to stop problems from growing. The Kidpower Trash Can is a big favorite. It gives kids a tool for protecting their feelings when others are saying mean things. The clear stranger safety and 'safety plan for being lost in the store' information has made vacations and trips a lot easier for our family.

I use the KidPower books with my preschoolers and my own children because the books convey important messages and specific strategies on how to be SAFE in this world. As an educator, I really appreciate the authors who have put this series together. I am sure it has saved countless lives already.

My students love learning various "KidPower" strategies to use when they are feeling angry, afraid, etc. In my preschool class, we read a page or two at a time and really tried to use the KidPower strategies and the language with them. Such as, if someone is teasing me, I have "walk away power" or if I want to hit someone I can use my "hands down power". So kid-friendly and really effective at teaching kids how to be aware of themselves and others in safe ways and how to set boundaries if needed.

The KidPower comics helped us SO MUCH when our kids were younger. My son had been very shy, and practicing the activities in the comics helped him be more self confident. On the other hand, my daughter used to walk up to anyone and start chit-chatting. Practicing the activities in the comics taught her some restraint and appropriate boundaries. We had tried to help both kids with these things beforehand, but our advice and cautions never hit home. KidPower, however, spoke their language, and taught them safety skills in simple, non-shaming, and empowering ways. Hooray for KidPower!!!!

Format: Paperback
My daughter is only three months old, but we already use language and skills from this book with her all the time! When we have to put her in her car seat or change her diaper, we tell her that we know she doesn't like it, but some things are not a choice, like touch for health and safety! By introducing Kidpower to her at this age and in little bits, we can help build a foundation for the kinds of skills she can use when she faces more complicated or scary situations later in life. I'm so grateful for this book and for Kidpower that I recently gave copies to all the other moms in our mothers group!

Kidpower is a fantastic resource for the safety of young children. These comics contain practical safety skills that can be practiced and utilized. The boundary-setting skills children can learn in Kidpower are unparalleled. Non-threatening, practical, and effective; you cannot go wrong with anything Kidpower!
