Release Date: September 07, 2000
Today's world is perceived to be a much more dangerous place than it was twenty or thirty years' ago. Whether it is or not, the fact remains that everyday life contains a minefield of hurdles and risks which children need to overcome. WHAT IF. . . aims to provide children with basic, practical information to help them avoid difficult and sometimes dangerous situations - at school, at home, out and about and even at a friend's house. WHAT IF. . . contains up to 100 different scenarios including what to do - if you come home from school on your own and you smell gas, if you knock out your front tooth, if you are unpopular or bullied at school or if you are staying at your friend's house and you wet the bed. It also shows children how to make a 999 call. Designed in a way that encourages children to read it on their own or in a discussion group with parents or teachers, WHAT IF. . . is an essential reference for all parents, teachers and children.
