I bought this for my 5-year-old, and he loves it. It covers almost all the bases for teaching kids about strangers: how to be cautious but not frightened, how to tell a trusted grownup about inappropriate behavior, what strangers might do to lure a child, siblings looking out for each other, etc. There's a great analogy that explains why kids need to be wary of strangers even though not all strangers are bad people. The illustrations are very enagaing, especially the ones with the bad vs. good apples and the scary vs. friendly environment. The one thing I would have liked is an explanation of what a stranger is. To many young children, anyone who smiles or says hello is a friend. Also, the stickers are a great idea; my son gets to pick a sticker every time we read the book, and he likes to match them up with the illustrations.
