To Whom it May Concern:: The safety of our children is of the upmost concern and importance. Recently I learned about the Super Safety Aeries books, written by a Certified Child Life Specialist, Early Childhood Intervention Specialist, specialist in child devrelopmenent, and mom of three little boys, and feel they should be added to our schools safety curriculum.

Endorsed by Safe Havens International Inc., the largest K12 safety organization in the world, andSafe and Sound Schools, as well as multiple other safety professionals across the globe, these books have been used in numerous schools across the nation.

It is written in a positive, self-affirming, first-person account, which helps children visualize a positive ending to a potentially difficult and frightening situation.
