Sister Bear is friendly with strangers... maybe a little too friendly. In fact, Papa Bear soon realizes that she'll talk to just about anyone! Thinking it will keep her safe, Papa Bear tells her about all the scary strangers out there — but that just means Sister is scared silly and starts to think every stranger is a threat.
Mama Bear knows Sister needs some common sense advice. With a lesson using literal bad apples, she helps Sister understand why you need to be cautious about strangers, how to know which strangers are safe to interact with, and what to do if she ever feels like she's at risk. This excellent, preschooler-appropriate book provides clear guidance about strangers, and even includes a list of Brother and Sister Bear's rules for staying safe.

"The Bears' rules for safe conduct among strangers are listed on the last pages, including a rule about the privacy of a bear's body. A good book to start awareness in young children." — School Library Journal.
