Fables of Crime Prevention - Tales of Forest-town
The National Crime Prevention Council has published interactive children’s books called Tales of Forest-town 1-2 and Life boat. The tales have different topics in the field of crime prevention, including computer security risks and the dangers of internet. We believe that starting to draw the children’s attention to safe internet use at the earliest age is important.
In almost every family there are one or more smart phones or computers and it is important for the children to learn how to use them and what the dangers are.
The text of the tales can help children to learn assertive communication and conflict management and the charming, brave and helpful animal characters bring police officers and teachers closer to the children.
Besides the stories there are also exercises and picture puzzles in the storybooks which can be solved after reading the stories.
The project started on 24/04/2015 and is still running.
