The book explains that home is a special place for you and your family, but it may not always be safe (particularly if parents are busy doing something else and not around to watch you). The reader is told about the dangers of playing with sharp things like knives and scissors, touching hot things (including fires) and playing with electrical items. The book highlights that cleaning materials and medicines can be very dangerous if used wrongly, and children should not touch them. Advice is given on what to do if there’s an accident (call for mum and dad, or in their absence another responsible adult). It urges children to look out for danger, and before doing anything risky, to ask themselves the question, ‘is it safe?’. The book concludes with the message that taking care of yourself feels good and shows everyone you are growing up.
