Review of Signs of Trouble by Janet Ann Collins

Signs of Trouble is a story about two young girls who accidentally get separated from their class while visiting a mall. Although they are scared, they remember what their teacher had taught them they needed to do if they ever got lost. The girls follow this important advice and provide a valuable lesson for children reading the book as they are being entertained by the situations and the girls' reactions in the story.

Jack Foster's colorful and expressive illustrations make the girls' emotions even more evident during their suspenseful experience.

Janet Collins has done a fine job of providing an entertaining and educational way to help teach young children about safety. It is another of the many quality children's books published by Guardian Angel Publishing.

This looks like such a fun book . . . and boy what a needed lesson. Scary moments for kids! A little knowledge can alleviate a lot of fear.

Sounds like a great book for young children. Lots of parents take their kids to the mall and I can see how easy it would be for someone to get separated.

What a great story idea! Separating from a group is so frightening for children, and I'm sure this book is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with us.
