Author Joae Brooks warns children about the risks of wandering away from their parents in public places through her educational picture book, Let Go Of Me! You’re Not My Daddy! This book is a realistic portrayal of every parent’s worst nightmare—losing their children in a crowd of strangers, a common situation that usually leads to serious and dangerous consequences.

This book follows the story of a young girl who wanders away from her mother in a mall and finds herself being pulled along by the hand by a man she doesn’t know. Instead of going quietly, Molly yells “Let Go Of Me! You’re Not My Daddy!” at the top of her lungs. She pulls back as much as she can, kicks him in the leg, and even bites his hand. Will she find help and see her mom again? Young readers can find out through the pages of this book.

Molly’s story will provide young girls and boys with insights and tips—and even huge lessons—on what to do when they are in a similar situation. Parents, who are fond of taking their children to the mall or other crowded places, should get a copy of this book and read it with them. The lessons they’ll learn will be something they’ll be grateful for the rest of their life.
