The books include an information sheet and DangerSpot stickers to invite parents and children to place around the home to identify any hazard or danger spots. In this way the books portray accidents, hazards and dangers to children in an amusing, and therefore, acceptable fashion whilst teaching the more serious aspects of these issues. The main point about the stickers is that it is very difficult to teach a young toddler about all the hazards for children around the home. By appreciating that a DangerSpot sticker means "danger, don't touch!" a child has then only to learn one thing - not to go near, or be careful.
Designed as story telling publications the books remind parents and teachers about the dangers in the home. By example, it is very often a parent or other adult who may leave a hot drink on the edge of a table for a child to knock over or leaves matches around for a toddler to find. Sometimes, it is the unintentional lack of thought or unawareness by the parents which ultimately causes the accidents. These child care books are written in the best way to help avoid accidents within the home by reminding the storyteller about the dangers.
These child safety books are an essential learning aid, focusing teachers', parent's and children's attention on accident awareness and health education. Use them as children's bedtime stories to keep your children safe.
The DangerSpot stories tell of Harey, the hare-brained rabbit in cartoon form, who is always rushing around causing and having accidents. While Chips, the dog, is often the victim of Harey’s carelessness, Scampi, the cat, tries her best to help with advice and Pillow, the parrot, always repeats the safety message. Full of funny jokes these books aim to entertain primarily, whilst teaching children safety, and providing information for storytellers, parents and teachers. The best of educational children's books.
