A Little Book About Safety
Explore personal safety for kids without scaring them!
When lovable Hugo Hippo navigates his way through a fun day at the community pool with his family, his safety readiness is put to the test in a variety of familiar situations.
Hugo helps kids understand safety topics gently and with humor, such as memorizing a Safe Adult's phone number, covering up private parts when changing, paying attention to your gut "Uh-Oh" feeling, and remembering to "Check First" with a Safe Adult before going anywhere unexpected.
Lovable, colorful characters and fun, familiar situations help draw kids in, while Hugo's clear, safe solutions help empower them to make their own safe choices every day!
A gentle but effective way to talk to young kids about safety — created in collaboration with child safety expert Pattie Fitzgerald of Safely Ever After, Inc. — offers language to help teach kids to be safe without any scare tactics or "ick factor," making Safety fun for everyone!
