When Heather, Julie and I were growing up my mom bought us this activity/coloring book and accompanying tape called the safety kids. It is all about being safe. Don't talk to strangers, learning your telephone number, etc. The songs were so cute and catchy that all three of us have sung them to our own children over the years. Well.....a few months ago Heather and Julie found a website that sells the books and cd's. They have even added two more books. One is about drugs and alcohol, the other about pornography. All three books are VERY well done and are a fun way to teach your kids about important things they need to know to protect them. I ordered them and made my kids listen to them in the car on the way to Canada this summer. One of the songs talks about what to do if you get lost. It says "Look for a grandma or mother with children". Julie's little Natalie was in the car with me at the time and said "hey, my mom always tells me that".
Check out the website http://www.familysafemedia.com/safety_kids_-_child_safety_edu.html. You can preview the songs and can order all three books!. You'll be surprised how quickly you'll be singing:
"All ya gotta do is yell and scream!!!
Sometimes its the only thing to do!!!
Noisy as a firetruck, you just gotta open up
and get the crowd's attention turned to you!!!"
(you'll know what I mean after you hear the song :-)
