Child Safety Education

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.

Children's story books

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.

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.
