Description of intervention (max. 600 words)

"Always come and tell me where you want to go", said Mum, "even if it is only to Darren's flat."

'Come and Tell Me' is an introduction to personal safety for young children. Its central message is that a child should come and tell the grown-up in charge before going anywhere with someone. A thoughtful and upbeat book which promotes communication between child and parent, without creating anxiety.

Helen Hollick wrote this book for her own daughter to explain about keeping safe in a reassuring - but memorable - way. She has revised and extended it for this new edition, which has been freshly illustrated by Lynda Knott.
