Mocha Mom sisters recently authored the book “Don’t Snooze on Clues” which teaches children how to spot dangerous and suspicious activity. It immediately got my attention shortly after receiving several stranger danger emails from our school district.
I immediately gave the book to my 8 year old daughter who really liked it. It allowed us to have an open discussion on how to not only spot suspicious behavior, but opened her eyes to what strangers may or may not look like.
On TV, books, or even in the games our children play, the bad guys are always in black clothing, look mean, and have ugly faces. The truth is that strangers can look like you or me. Keba, the author, does a great job illustrating this in “Don’t Snooze on Clues.”
Although my kids have been driving me absolutely bonkers with their silly tattle-telling on every little thing, it’s important for them to understand when it is a good time to tell. The constant theme throughout the story teaches kids that it’s okay to tell a parent, teacher, or police officer that when kids see something that isn’t right.
The book is a short 24 pages filled with awesome tips which kids can remember. It also has a glossary in the back of the book and you can download a FREE activity book filled with word match, crazy maze, coloring page, word search, neighborhood detective award, and more.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if Valley Stream Mom hosted a meet and greet with the author plus a few fun activities? Hmmm….Stay tuned!
