Sometimes the decision for children to listen to their parents can keep them from imminent danger. The importance of children listening to their parents is the valuable lesson that author Duane Halbert would like his 3-6 year old readers to take away from his new book Danger at the Mailbox (published by AuthorHouse).
Halbert hopes Danger at the Mailbox will teach children to always obey to their parents without hesitation. This series of books is designed to give the child a sense of personal responsibility in a fun way. They are written with the purpose of teaching good character to young children. Halbert states:
One of the good things about books is that the lessons taught in them are repeated over and over to the child reinforcing good behavior. That is what these books are designed to do. The purpose of this book is to give parents a tool to help teach their children good behavior and interaction with other children. Hopefully these traits will carry over into their adult lives.
Danger at the Mailbox is a 20-page, fully illustrated book that parents and children can read together. The book is about a little girl trying to help her mother by going toget the mail. The little girl, Brilynn, is unaware of the danger lurking in the grass near the mailbox. As Brilynn approaches the mailbox, her dog, Avery, keeps her from danger by pulling on her clothes. Persistent to help her mother, Brilynn continues toward the danger at the mailbox. The mother calls out to her to get the mail but Avery will not let the little girl approach the mailbox. When the mother comes out to see what is going on she is horrified as she sees a snake coiled up under the box in the grass. With a strong concerned voice she tells Brilynn to run to the porch. Brilynn runs to safety while Avery barks at the snake and chases it off. Avery gets a reward for being so brave - a piece of Brilynn’s pancake - and gets to lick the syrup off Brilynn’s fingers.
