Library Media Connection
“This series would be ideal supplemental reading for lessons on health, fitness, and safety.” —Library Media Connection
“[Y]ounger readers will find healthy doses of useful information about good practices, safe storage of potential poisons, and what to do in case of emergency—all delivered with melodramatic relish . . . rather than bland, forgettable cautions.”—Booklist
School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
“Though the first-person narratives, which flow easily and contain clear, direct language, are not conventional nonfiction in format, they still convey useful information. Eye-catching full-color illustrations match the text and aid comprehension, while red text boxes emphasize important points.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
