How do we talk to our kids about personal safety without scaring them? The Mother Company has considered this question thoughtfully and has released the charming story of Hugo the Hippo, who navigates his way through a day at the pool with his family. All of Hugo's smart choices keep him strong, happy and safe, empowering children to believe they possess the skills to act as bosses of their own safety.

"A Little Book About Safety" uses relatable language and keeps kids engaged through its interactive nature. It includes “Safety Tips” that break up the storyline where so you can pause and have a discussion. The book also emphasizes the importance of having a “Safe Adult” to trust; every child has a different family situation and this terminology takes that into consideration.

From knowing a safe adult’s name and phone number to being confident saying NO to keeping “the parts of your body covered by your bathing suit" private, The Mother Company perfectly touches on difficult but important topics and gives children ownership of their choices.
