The Little Child is with his mother in the supermarket and he is having fun tossing his red ball in the air. The second time he tosses the ball, the Little Child is not able to catch it. It bounces, hits, rolls, and stops in the middle of an aisle. The Little Child runs fast, grabs his ball, and turns to run back to his mommy. He cannot find her. He shouts her name but it does not work for him. Some strangers come, offering to take him home but the Little Child does not go with them. Will the Little Child get back together with his mommy?

The Good Stranger by Azha Robinson is an informative and educational book that will guide children on how to deal with strangers and behave in unexpected situations. The Little Child refuses to go with the first stranger, does not accept the food offered by the second stranger, but he knows he is safe with one of the managers there. The author helps children understand the importance of being safe when they are lost, how to be cautious when situations like this happen, and not to believe just any stranger who tries to help them. The illustrations breathe life into the characters and the story and make the concept tangible to readers. It is an excellent book for parents, tutors, and caretakers to read out to youngsters to help them understand how to react in these kinds of situations and who to trust and who not to trust.
