About the Author:
Susan Newman, Ph.D., is a social psychologist and author of many books on family issues including Parenting An Only Child: The Joys and Challenges of Raising Your One and Only; Little Things Long Remembered: Making Your Children Feel Special Every Day; and Little Things Mean A Lot: Creating Happy Memories with Your Grandchildren.

From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6 Newman offers valid information, and her advice is usually appropriate in this revision of her 1971 booklet "Ice Cream Isn't Always Good." Unfortunately she presents the information in emotional and didactic stories. An omniscient narrator relates ten possible encounters children may have with strangers. Hillary is kidnapped by a "mean man"; a woman stranger comes to take Amy home from school. Each story is resolved fortuitously by the child, and advice follows. The final chapters give more tips on how to become stranger-wise. Unlike the child-narrated stories in Terkel and Rench's Feeling Safe Feeling Strong (Lerner, 1984), these stories teach rather than inform, and the author occasionally uses loaded words like "evil-minded adults" or "sneaky strangers." In one of the stories, young David has "a funny feeling" about a man he recognizes as a family friend. The point of the story is to trust your instincts, but the man's actions do not warrant a frightened reaction. Fearful are the consequences of making all adults seem sinister. When Newman wrote her booklet there was nothing like it, but now better choices are available. Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
