DangerSpot Books

Catalogue 2017

Children’s picture books, with safety stickers, helping to prevent accidents within the home and elsewhere.


DangerSpot Books Falls are the most common accidents amongst children, whilst bumping into people, things or being hurt by falling objects are the second most widespread injuries. Burns and scalds are the third most common, mostly from hot drinks and hot water from a kettle. Poisonings from medicines, garden and household chemicals are the fourth most frequent accidents within the home. The DangerSpot stories tell of Harey, the hare-brained rabbit, who is always rushing around causing and having accidents. While Chips, the dog, is often the victim of Harey’s carelessness Scampi, the cat, tries her best to help with advice and Pillow, the parrot, always repeats the message. The books include an information sheet and DangerSpot stickers, ( except “Stranger Dangers�), to invite parents and children to place them around the home to identify any danger spots. In this way the books portray accidents and dangers to children in an amusing and, therefore, acceptable fashion whilst teaching the more serious aspects of these issues. The main point about the stickers is that it is very difficult to teach young children about all the dangers around the home. By appreciating that a DangerSpot sticker means "danger, don't touch!" a child has then only to learn one thing - not to go near, or be careful.
