Editorial Reviews

Review

“A creative, calming, and affirming book for every child.”
—Patty Wetterling, cofounder, Jacob Wetterling Resource Center


 “If families followed the advice in On Those Runaway Days, fewer kids would choose to run from home.”—Maureen Blaha, Executive Director, National Runaway Switchboard



“The simple color illustrations add a comforting touch to this highly recommended picturebook, ideal for parents (or teachers) to read aloud to children as a lead-in to talking about tough issues, and as a preventative to teach children about better options than running away before a crisis happens.”—Midwest Book Review

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
On Those Runaway Days is a children's picturebook created especially to help teach children to see running away for what it truly is: a dangerous means of avoiding problems rather than learning how to confront and fix them. The straightforward text offers young readers simple means with which to constructively deal with problems instead. "When I feel scared or upset, that 'uh-oh' feeling starts inside me. It's a signal that reminds me to get out of the situation right away and find an adult I trust. My 'uh-oh' feeling is telling me this is one of those times. I need to stop running away and talk about how I feel." The simple color illustrations add a comforting touch to this highly recommended picturebook, ideal for parents (or teachers) to read aloud to children as a lead-in to talking about tough issues, and as a preventative to teach children about better options than running away before a crisis happens.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book authored by a caring and dedicated national expert on children and youth issues, including missing and exploited children. This book, along with the other in the series by Ms. Feigh "I Can Play It Safe" provides important child safety information presented in a format that is easy to understand for both children and adults, and also very practical. These books are certainly "must-haves" for all parents, teachers, youth workers, and children's librarians. Very highly recommended!

On Those Runaway Days is a great tool to use to help children recognize and deal with their emotions. It also teaches children to trust their instincts ("the uh-oh feeling") and to face problems with help from adults they trust, rather than to "run away" (literally or figuratively). I have two kids in elementary school, and they both love this book. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful book written by a dear friend of my family! She is an expert in child abduction and exploitation and it shows in this book! Clear, and easy to read information with bright graphics draw my children's attention. It is a book that is talked about time and time again in my house. Would recommend to anyone with young children!
