How to use this book

There are 14 different scenarios suitable for ages 4-10 years. 

It's a chance to involve  children in a safety discussion before accidents happen.

All kids are different. Reading the verse is perfect  for all children.  Some pictures may suit  the older children.


It is not a book to read like a story. Instead use it highlighting different scenarios.

The aim is to get kids thinking before they act, rather than you just saying “Don’t do it.”

Choose a relevant scenario or group of scenarios

Show the child the scenario and read the verse

Then ask “What Can Possibly Go Wrong?”

Discuss the picture, what could go wrong and why, then turn the page

On the outcome page read the verse  and discuss the picture, what happened and how we could change this.


The scenarios and outcomes are  often presented with a touch of humour to maintain interest while bringing home the message - that if you stop and think before you act you will make your everyday life much easier on yourself and safer

Also included at the bottom of this outcomes page are other suggestions you might discuss in relation to the scenario.You will probably have some thoughts of your own which are personal to you and your children which you can include in the mix .
