Although shes not allowed to play outside without her Mum or Dad being with her, one day Mary adventurously decides to edge herself out of the nest... just to take a look. A strong gust of wind blows Mary out of the tree and the safety of the nest - leaving her lost and cold... but not alone! Meeting pythons looking for lunch dates, alligators snappily offering her a ride... Mary wonders if she will ever find her way home. This book will help children understand stranger danger. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way. Story Suitable For 4-8 Year Olds
