Very Helpful Resource May 7, 2007
In our parish setting, we found this book well-written and very appropriate for both children, preteens, and high school youth. Parents responded very well to the assistance given them in presenting sensitive content. At least in grades 1-5, in our geographic area public school children already know and can recite "the rules" if there is a dangerous or potentially harmful situation. But it is helpful to present this content in a faith context. Thanks to the authors for providing this resource.
