Emma Lion loves to make new friends. But Mama warns her to be careful and tells her not to talk to strangers. Emma sees new people wherever she goes, and she wants to meet them. How will she know who is a stranger?

A cautionary tale with charming illustrations and a gentle, repetitive message for young children to help them learn to stay safe. Parents should read and discuss the story with their children, helping them understand how to keep safe without becoming afraid.

Highly recommended. ( )

Through this book, older brother Matthew explains to Emma that she should not talk to strangers through different scenes. Emma is able to learn right from wrong when talking to strangers.

Reflection: This is a great book to bring out sporadically throughout the school year to teach responsibility. Once students grasp the concept, they can help peers or younger family members understand.

Summary: This book has talking lions and it is about a mother, brother, and daughter, lion. They go through their day and Matthew, Emma’s brother, tells Emma not to ever talk to strangers at the park, grocery store, at the bus stop, or anywhere else. He also tells her never to answer the door, or telephone, and not to take rides or candy from strangers.

Personal Reaction: I like this book because it teaches kids who to talk to and who not to talk to. It also is very realistic when talking about real life events.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. In the classroom, I could have the kids list who are not strangers.
2. In the classroom, I could have the kids list where they should look out for strangers.

Summary:
This book is about a family of lions and they are teaching the younger lion what a stranger is and what to do if one talks to her. Her brother is doing most of the teaching because he is older. He tells her that if a strangers comes up to them, they should not talk to them but immediately find their parents, a neighbor they trust, or the police. At the end of this book she has learned what a stranger is and Mama Lion says you should always talk to your parents about these things.

Personal Reaction:
I think this is a great book for teaching children to not talk to strangers. Sometimes they dont really get that there are bad people in the world so it is nice to have a kid friendly way to explain it.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Great way to teach students about not talking to strangers and what to do.
2. Help students memorize their parents, neighbors, and the police phone numbers. ( )

Summary:
This book is about a young lion who loves answering the telephone, door, and riding her bike. Her brother talks about all the different places a stranger can be and what they might say or do. He informs her of who and what a stranger is and all of the dangers about strangers. If a stanger ever comes up to hershe should find a teacher, parent, or police officer when she is approached by a stranger. At the end of the book, she tells her brother that she know now who a stranger is and he can ask her for advice.

Personal Reaction:
This is a great book about teaching children about strangers. Some children are very outgoing and will talk to anyone. They don't understand that something bad can happen to them. They need to learn about strangers before they are ever in a situation with one.

Classroom Extensions:
1. This is a great way to teach students about talking to strangers and who strangers are. I would have them practice saying NO.
2. I would have students talk about what they would do if they were ever approached by a stranger. ( )
