During this stay-at-home period, many parents have been forced to become school teachers overnight. While there are a host of e-learning resources available, nothing beats a good, old-fashioned book. AAA’s Safety Library is a carefully curated selection of books that cover topics including, but not limited to, traffic safety, pedestrian safety, bike safety and personal safety. These books are fun and appropriate for children aged K-3.
Each of these selections are excellent for reading to your child or allowing them to explore independently. These stories allow kids to explore the concepts of safety and awareness, and provide ample opportunity for kids to discuss and dive deeper into the many ways they can be advocates for themselves and others.
