Book Recommendations About Child Safety

Each year, the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) runs their Child Safety Week in early June. Therefore, for this month, we wanted to share our top 3 safety themed book recommendations to support this year’s theme of ‘Safety Made Simple’. We have decided on a range of safety themes, including water safety, emergency services and travel safety with the summer holidays on it’s way. Take a look at our Child Safety Made Simple blog to learn more about the annual event and to find some useful links for more information.

Read on for our top book suggestions appropriate for nursery ages.

Here to Help Splish, Splash Safety: A book about water safety by The Wiggles

Join The Wiggles as they practise water safety!

All Buckled Up by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha

From bestselling team Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha comes an adventure-filled board book about travel safety, seatbelts, and wild rides!

Whether you ride in a stroller, a bulldozer, a garbage truck, or a racecar, everybody buckles up for adventure! Learn from all the important people that wear seatbelts before they take off on wild rides. Astronauts, garbagemen, and firefighters agree:

Everyone’s ready to go for ride,
As soon as they buckle the belt by their side.
Time to go? It’s easy and quick…

One, two, three, CLICK!
All buckled up!

This board book is perfect for parents who want to drive home the lesson that seatbelts are important…and the first step toward adventure!


To the Rescue: A board book filled with flaps and facts by Pat-a-Cake, Fiona Munro and Ramon Olivera

Join Kit and Pup, our two friendly and inquisitive animal guides, as they spend a day out learning all about what the different emergency services do to help people. Curious preschoolers will love these books packed with flaps and facts!

Kit and Pup will accompany very young children on a voyage of discovery and fun as they peek beneath the flaps and find out all about what lifeguards, police officers and emergency plane pilots do.

We hope this month’s book recommendations have been helpful. Story time can be the perfect moment to approach specific topics of concern or curiosity with your little one and a great conversation starter to learn more about how they are feeling. We hope you enjoy our recommendations and, happy reading!

Spending even just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success and – it’s a fantastic learning experience for all involved. Together, let’s help build the bookworms of the future!
