I haven’t done a book review for some time so I’m happy to be back with a new one now, especially since it’s a children’s book that moms like me can read to our kids.

This is definitely one book that moms can relate to. Who among us haven’t experienced at least one of our kids refuse to hold our hand when out in public? Who among us haven’t experienced our kids attempt to go off on their own to explore? Who among us don’t worry ourselves sick about our kids getting lost when they do so?

I, for one, have experienced those things. While I think I’ve done a pretty good job reminding my kids how to be safe when we go out, I think that, like the kid in this book, they sometimes don’t get why it’s important.

The nearly six-year-old boy in the book feels that he’s too old to be holding mama’s hand and that he’s old enough to go exploring the mall on his own. That is, until he gets lost. It was only then that he realizes what can happen. Luckily, his mom also taught him well about how to find help if he gets lost and so he eventually found his way back to her.

Although this book is only 12 pages long, it’s short enough to hold a young child’s interest but long enough to impart very valuable life lessons. If you’re child is at that stage wherein he or she is already showing signs of wanting to be more independent, this book could be helpful to you in teaching your child about safety.

I love that the book uses rhyming words. I believe it makes the story more fun for the kids to hear. I also love that the illustrations are cute and minimal, not overpowering the text at all.

I’m all for entertaining children’s books that are educational too. This one is exactly that and so I definitely recommend it.

  1. Oh, this is one of my greatest fears. πŸ™ I’m always afraid I’ll lose track of my kids while we’re out. My brother and I got lost once when we were kids, so I’m taking extra care to remind my kids often about sticking close

  2. It’s nice that the book uses rhyming words. This would be new learning for kids aside from the nice story.

  3. I know how makulit children can be. I also taught my daughter how to find me when she gets lost. I made her memorize my celphone number since she was 2 years old.

    1. I want to get a copy of this book so I can read it to my daughter.

  4. I don’t have kids yet but books like this could probably help kids understand at a very young age

  5. That is my biggest fear when we’re at the malls, getting my daughter lost. Now that my daughter is showing interest in books, I’ll show this to her the next time we go to the bookstore.

  13. Great that more books are there to support the plight of moms. I hope more guides such as these will get published.

  14. I’m super paranoid with Tristan when we’re out, so I can totally relate to this. Thankfully he has proven to be more responsible than I thought he was, so it’s easier now that he’s bigger.

  15. Rhyming words usually help the little boys memorize or pronounce the words correctly. πŸ™‚ Anyhow, I’m always strict when we’re out. I always tell them to hold my hands and never leave my side… But, it’s a practice for children to be independent when we’re outside, too. I want this book, promise! πŸ™‚

  17. Rhymes are a good way to keep the kids interested in a story, the rhythm a rhyme gives keeps up the energy. I would love to read it because it is very relatable to all moms.

  19. This is a good read for someone my son’s age. He is turning 9 this July, and while he’s still not like the boy in the book, I know sooner or later, he’ll try to do things on his own even when he’s not prepared for those yet.

    1. Wow, your son is 9 years old and yet he still doesn’t attempt to go off on this own. My son is only 4 years old but he’s always wandering off so we really have to keep close watch.

  20. How do you purchase books from Amazon? I got back into reading this vacation since I don’t have a lot of work to do but Booksale closed down at SM Pampanga and I don’t know where to find adorb books in affordable prices.

  25. I lost my daughter Diana when we were at the grocery store. I felt so scared and cannot breathe. I am almost crying sa sandali na nawala talaga siya and let her hear my voice. And then I saw her crying and looking for me. Since then, I never bring along Yana without buddy tag kasi natrauma na ako and my two other boyshave it as well.

  26. looks like a cute little practical book πŸ™‚

  27. I hope they have a paperback or board book version. This looks like a good book to read πŸ™‚

  28. This seems pretty apt for my 3 and a half who’s showing signs of independence. He likes to run around when we’re out, but I always explain to him that he has to stay close to mommy because there are bad people we don’t know who might grab him. I don’t sugarcoat these things. For me, they have to know these things early on.

  29. Yes we must take extra extra care when the kids are out. I for one really stress that Joaquin has to hold someone’s hand. This is a good read and a good guide for the kids. πŸ™‚
