ea. vol: illus. by Frederick Bennett Green. unpaged. (It's OK To Say No Bks.). Grosset. Apr. 1986. PSm $4.95. PreSchool-Grade 1Straightforward language that preschoolers will understand em phasizes phrases that the Children's Justice Foundation, which endorses this series, thinks that every child needs. Repeated safety lessons and rules will help children recognize and respond to threatening situations, such as "Don't keep secrets with grownups unless the secret is really a happy sur prise," and "Never take anything from a stranger, even something that is yours." Illustrations depict children of many races and a child in a wheelchair. Faces tend all to look the same, with no child looking very scared and no adult looking very threatening. This makes it difficult to tell in some pictures whether the adult is the threatening or the trust ed one. The best books aimed at warn ing children against molesting adults are those like Linda Girard's My Body Is Private (Whitman, 1984) that empha size self-respect, using your inner re sources and feeling good about your self. This series has sensible lessons, but does little to help children judge how to tell who is a trusted adult or how to know when their own judgment is good. It is not complex enough to use with children of school age, but it might be a useful supplement for parents looking for another way to teach chil dren these important survival tech niques.Anne Osborn, Riverside City and County Public Library, Calif.
