Look Left, Look Right, Look Left Again by Ginger Pate and illustrated by Rhett Pennell is the perfect book to teach your little ones about road safety. It is a board book and teaches children safety rules when crossing the street. It is recommended for kids ages 3-8 and sells for $8.50.
The story is about a little Duck named Wally Waddlewater who made a card for his Grandmother. He wants to deliver it to her, but was nearly hit by a car when crossing the street. His Mother then teaches him to “Look left, look right, look left again”. She walks with him across several streets to make it to his Grandma’s house. Each time they practice and see what things they need to look out for. There are cars, buses, fire trucks, a busy intersection with a stop light, and even a train crossing. They practice their rule each time and make it safely there and back.
After that day they practice many more times together until his Mother decides he is ready to try crossing the street all on his own. She watches him make it safely across the street to his Grandma’s house for a visit.
This book has bright colored, fun illustrations. It is written in rhymes which makes it fun to read and to listen to. My kids LOVE this story and we have read it so many times that I nearly have it memorized. It really is a great book to teach safety rules and I am glad to have this one in our home!
