She watches me with eagle eyes
Like I’m a treasured jewel
She cramps my style, oh man alive
“MOM, THIS JUST AIN’T COOL”
Great read a loud book to younger kids to instill the good habits of always holding to Mum's or Dad's hand and be near them whenever they are outside. It is really a very "dangerous world" out there for a young kid. Through this book, the younger kids will know that even kids who are nearly 6 years old needs to always follow these rules too.
For the older kids who thinks like the boy in the book, this could serve as a reminder the importance of holding hands, it is more for safety reasons than to embarrass them.
The book also give hints of what to do when the kid gets separated from the parents, this is important and useful because some kids will panic and cry their eyes out instead of seeking help.
I love the simple illustrations and the simple words used, though the rhyming could be better in some ways.
