Even if you don’t have guns in your home, you never know where your child will be when they encounter a firearm.
Have you done enough to educate your child on how to respond?
Too many children are injured or killed by accidents with a firearm – many of these accidents can be avoided with proper education for children (and adults). This book introduces the lesson of “Stop, get away, and tell an adult” to your child in a way that they’ll want to hear.
Instead of reading like an obvious gun safety book, this book introduces various accidents that can happen in a child’s life and reassures your child that accidents can happen, things can be replaced, and they are still loved. However, when a firearm is introduced at the end of the book, a stark contrast is made: an accident with a firearm can be very serious and result in an injury that can’t be fixed with “glue or paste.”
After the story, there’s a note to parents about firearm safety. Yes, children must learn how to react but real firearm safety starts with adults. The four basic rules of firearm safety are included for parents – these were left out of the children’s section of the book so that the firearm safety message is simple enough for them to remember. When you think they’re ready, you can teach the four firearm safety rules to your children on your own.
FROM THE BACK COVER: Alice and Jack are busy kids! Like any busy kid, they make mistakes. Fortunately, their parents are understanding and quick to forgive.

Firearm Safety is No Accident is for parents who want to educate their children about the importance of firearm safety, whether the lesson relates to their own home, or going to a friend s house. Ensure your children stay safe by knowing the proper response upon seeing a gun, so accidents don t happen! This illustrated, engaging book not only teaches children, but also illustrates how your child can inform their friends about firearm safety. What better way to keep kids safe than have them help one another?
