From Crib to Kindergarten

The Essential Child Safety Guide

In childhood, the occasional bump or scrape comes with the territory. But serious injury is another matter, creating anxiety for even the most experienced parent.

Fortunately, unintentional injury can be prevented. In this essential guide, an eminent child safety specialist explains how to reduce the risk of childhood injury at home—and beyond. Her tips help protect children from birth to age five—those who are most vulnerable to serious injury. She describes how to provide a safe environment during the daily activities of sleeping, eating, bathing, dressing, playing, and traveling. The major hazards and potential injuries associated with each activity are identified along with the age when the child is at greatest risk. Illustrations, checklists, and summary charts complement the text and put valuable lessons and critical information at parents’ fingertips.

From Crib to Kindergarten is an indispensable "how to" for parents, grandparents, teachers, babysitters, and daycare providers.

Reviews

"Packed with indispensable advice and is an essential resource and reference guide for parents and caregivers. Recommended for all public libraries."

- Library Journal (starred review)

"Literally, a lifesaver, From Crib to Kindergarten is a must-read not only for parents, teachers, and child care professionals, and should be an absolutely mandatory study text for first time baby-sitters."

- Midwest Book Review

"The book is unusually accessible and can be used both as a text and a reference guide by parents with little formal education... The book is chock full of helpful diagrams that deliver clear safety messages."
