If you’re a mom with young children, just reading this line may sow panic within you, as you picture the terrifying scene: a huge store teeming with people…you trying to get your shopping done with your kids hanging onto your cart…and then turning around and seeing that Shmuli, your easily-distracted five-year-old, is missing.
Every mother has her own version of this horror story, but in every case, when Mom is baruch Hashem finally reunited with little Shmuli, she is emphatic that her kids learn the correct steps to take if such a thing ever happens again (which, of course, it often does).
That’s why all the mothers on our staff were so thrilled with the release of Ari Gets Lost. In this adorable children’s book we read about a little boy who goes to the zoo with his mother and siblings, but gets separated from them and doesn’t know how to find his family. In a fun, entertaining, and non-threatening way, he learns the all-important dos and don’ts of what to do when you get lost…and readers do, too!
Endorsed by renowned psychologist and trauma specialist Dr. Norman N. Blumenthal, as well as by Chief of Police Gregory Meyer of Lakewood, NJ, this book also includes a page of guidelines for parents, so parents can learn how to help their children stay safe and calm even when they are lost.
In short, this book is what every parent needs to read to their kids before they set out on any trip or shopping expedition!
