Staying Home Alone

Dottie Raymer's Staying Home Alone prepares kids for those times when they have the house all to themselves. It emphasizes safety, but the tone is not didactic. Instead, important information is made kid-friendly through engaging graphics and an accessible format, with lots of sidebars. The opening chapter, which addresses house rules and assesses a young person's readiness for this new responsibility, is especially helpful. Additionally, there are chapters on dealing with siblings, handling tricky situations, and knowing who to call for specific emergencies. Lauren Scheuer's cartoon illustrations reflect the target audience, which are middle-school girls, but boys, too, will find this an valuable guide. Author: Dottie Raymer Pages: 72
