For kids (and this is the main goal of the book) the stories demonstrate how kids can set boundaries for appropriate behaviour, act more assertive to stay safe and increase awareness. The stories clearly illustrate when it is ok to talk to strangers (lost in a shop?), how rules are different in emergancies (kitchen on fire? should we let the fireman in?) and there is a brilliant story on accepting compliments rather than throwing the away. The use of illustration allows for a lot of information to be given visually and because it's illustration rather than photo's it's very ageless and inoffensive.
