Another picture book about children’s safety issues

Yoni Ploni Never Talks to Strangers!

A few weeks ago, I reported about Yoni Ploni Never Talks to Strangers, a book written about personal safety specifically for children in the Jewish community. (See the original post here.) This book is now available through the Israel Book Shop website.

Another book on this topic has just been released: Artscroll’s Let’s Stay Safe. This book had a wider subject area than Yoni Ploni…, as it covers such topics as crossing the street, bicycle safety, etc. as well as stranger safety. You can find Let’s Stay Safe at Jewish bookstores and online on the Artscroll website.

Jewish Picture Book Aims to Protect our Children from Harm

Safety is–for obvious reasons–a high priority in our community right now. A friend recommended the book described in the link above. The article suggests that it introduces strategies to children so they can avoid being harmed by adults around them, yet approaches the subject in a way that is appropriate in our community.
In the comments section of the article, it makes clear that this book focuses on interactions with malicious strangers. Statistically, most children who are harmed (lo aleinu) are harmed by people they know. The next printing of the book will have this topic added.
Yoni Ploniā€¦ Never Talks to Strangers can be acquired directly from the author by dialing 347 393 3670.

The book has endorsements that have led me to place the link here, but I have not read the book myself yet. If you have and have any feedback to share, please feel free to add a comment below.
