Excellent book for talking to your kids about strangers - without scaring them.
J. McCurry
I think on these books it would be good to reread them together every few months, until they get bored and say, "we know this already".
Turquoise Fan
Highly recommended for personal, school, and community library child safety collections.

Format: Hardcover
Most children art taught at home and at school not to talk to strangers. In Who Is A Stranger And What Should I Do?, Linda Girard takes the idea further by explaining about "kind" strangers, the stranger who is not a child's friend, strangers in public places, "doorbell" strangers, and others. Girard's practical, well presented text is illustrated with the artwork of Helen Cogancherry to provide young readers ages 6 to 12 with visual reinforcement of sound and sensible narrative. Who Is A Stranger And What Should I Do? is enhanced for the reader with ten "what if" situations and topics for discussion with parents, teachers, and caregivers. Highly recommended for personal, school, and community library child safety collections.

This book is listed as age appropriate for 4-year-olds. In my opinion, it is way too complex for this age group, I would say more for ages 6 on up. Check it out at your library first.

Format: Paperback
This excellent book is a good teaching tool for helping children recognize who is a "kind" stranger as opposed to someone they don't know who is unkind. The beautiful illustrations add to the books appeal; the hypothetical scenarios will undoubtedly help children and parents think of methods to apply when faced with "unkind" strangers.

I bought this book for my 6-year old. We read it together and discussed what they were talking about in each chapter. Excellent book for talking to your kids about strangers - without scaring them. I definitely recommend it for most kids starting at 5-years old.

Format: Paperback
I feel it's important to begin teaching our kids at an early age about "stranger danger". This book was recommended for children as young as four, and so I bought it yesterday to begin teaching my four year old son about strangers. We tried to read it last night, and the language and even message were way over his head. I'm sure this would be a good book for slightly older kids, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone under six.

I bought this for my young sons and it gave helpful and useful tips for dealing with all types of strangers. Not scary for young children. Very appropriate.

By Ms. Remmi on April 28, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The write up says this book is for kids, but it's more complicated than a small child can understand. I felt this introduced my daughter to too many concepts at one time and increased her anxiety. Every time we read the book, it is discussed for days on end...which can be good for her understanding, but I can see it just makes her worried. I think there are better books to help a 6-7 year old understand strangers without frightening them.
