“No! Go away!”
When do we begin to educate young children about “stranger danger”?... As early as possible.
How do we educate them, in a non-frightening format, about being safe? This children’s book uses animals to teach the “stranger danger” message.
No! Go Away! teaches young children a simple concept that they are safest in a group and not safe if they wander off alone. It teaches children about tricks a stranger might use. The book focuses on the notion of “play,” to which all children would respond.
This children’s book uses simple, repetitive text and clear, colourful, realistic illustrations.
It encourages children to participate verbally and to react: “No! Go Away!”
The book is a tool for parents, teachers and caregivers to discuss and expand upon the subject of stranger danger with young children, as is appropriate to their ability to absorb and accommodate more information.
