It's the third book I've commented today where I found grammatical errors in the books. Kinda makes me sad to see so many subpar edited books. A wonderful review, as usual.

Talking cones and signs? Odd characters, but as a parent myself, anything that works is wonderful! Lots of colors and funny characters would be great to keep a young child's attention. Great review!

My daughter loved this book! I must say I agree with her. Making safety sound fun isn't easy, but the author has done a great job and with such amazing imagination to have talking signs! Thank you for the review.
You're right. Safety isn't a very fun topic, but the author makes it enjoyable. I'm glad your daughter liked this one. Make sure to check out the others in the series.
Thank you, I will look out for the others :D

Sometimes I think authors want to know if there book is any good before they even have it edited. Maybe, though, they just don't understand the value. In any case, hopefully it'll be fixed.

There aren't many other books that teach about these warning signs. Thanks!

Well, I do not usually enjoy children-like books but based on your review, I might make an exception. Being aware of our surroundings adds a good ring to it.

This is a cute concept for a children's book. I haven't seen anything like it before. Hopefully the author gets some of the editing cleaned up a bit. Great review!

It's an important message for adults, too. We need to pay more attention. Thanks.

Thanks for another insightful review! The concept of the story sounds very unique. However, the constant use of commas instead of periods would drive me crazy. Although the grammar might be considered poetic license, it's important for children to learn proper grammar. All these commas might cause kids to develop bad habits in their own writing.

I definitely agree. It's why I felt they were worth mentioning. An extra comma here or there doesn't bother me, but this was constant. Thanks!
