Use Beverly Cleary's "Ribsy" to Talk About Safety With Your Kids

Henry's dog Ribsy gets lost in the mall parking lot and goes home with the wrong family. What will happen to him, and how will he get back home? Use this funny story about a lovable mutt and the boy who wants him back to talk about safety and real-life problem-solving skills with your family. When you're done, move on to some other Beverly Cleary titles like Dear Mr. Henshaw, Beezus and Ramona, and Emily's Runaway Imagination.
