    Young children can learn how to be safe and secure and how to prevent injuries with the help of their caregivers. This book offers life-saving information for adults paired with lessons for children from Gronwee, a very smart safety frog. Injuries are not accidents because we know where, when, why, and how they happen. They are preventable. Kids Safe and Secure helps both children and adults learn these important concepts about everything from 9-1-1 awareness to traffic and stranger safety.
