Does your kid know what to do if s/he gets lost? Since 7 out of 10 kids will get lost in their lifetime, we wrote this book to help!
When six-year-old Lyla gets lost at a department store, she has to figure out what to do. First she calls out for her mom. Then she wisely asks another mom with kids for help. Together they seek a store clerk to make an announcement over the loudspeakers. When Lyla is reunited with her mom, children will rejoice alongside her and emerge more informed and empowered as a result.
With poetic watercolor imagery and a gentle approach, When Lyla Got Lost (and found) is an essential reminder that preparing and knowing what to do “just in case” is a great way to stay safe.
