Oooh, sure! I'd love to reread it. I think I have it on the shelf... if I can't find it, I guess I'll get another copy! I wonder if they have it for Kindle (my best Christmas gift!)?

Ok, so this will come up in the context of the chapter eventually ;-) but quickly.... My experience is, you don't have to explain these. My four-year-old was watching Caillou, and they modeled the "look for a police officer if you're lost" thing. So I asked him, if he was lost, who would he look for? And, without ANY prompting, he said he'd look for a mommy. And kids, unless they're extremely shy, will usually ask for help if they haven't been taught not to.
That's what I love about this book: it's totally about trusting your intuition and not letting it get drowned out by social messages of "propriety".
