Watch Out! On the Road

Children learn to observe safety rules when riding their bikes, or while traveling as a passenger in their parents’ car. They will also find important pedestrian advice on safe crossing at intersections and staying close to parents or the adult they are walking with. Clearly written in brief passages that are easy for younger children to absorb and understand, the Watch Out! series of color-illustrated books give kids safety advice that applies inside and outside the home, while they are traveling in a car, and when they are enjoying nature and having outdoor fun. The lessons illustrated in all Watch Out! books help children identify safety issues and avoid potentially dangerous situations. Appealing cartoon-style illustrations on every page.
