How certain can you be that the person who is claiming to be a police officer is really one? Who do you trust?
How Do You Know If It´s Officer Joe? is written with children´s safety in mind. It helps children to become more observant as they are approached by a police officer.
Children have a genuine trust for police officers, but they need to be able to know the difference between a real police officer and someone pretending to be a police officer. This book points out that a real police officer would have an official badge and picture identification to show. Additionally, there are preventive measures to follow when approached by someone pretending to be a police officer.
This children´s book is informative and fun to read for all ages and is wonderfully illustrated by Berkshire artist, Brian Bailey.
