Dive into the Lauren’s Kingdom interactive book and watch the pages come to life right before your eyes! Filled with adventure for boys and girls ages 5-9, Lauren’s Kingdom teaches personal safety from a place of fun – not fear – with animations, games and surprises for kids, guided reading questions and safety activities for families, and a parent portal with important child safety tips just for parents.
Meet Lauren and Rodney, two best friends who live by the sea and love to play basketball and adventure together…but the friends each have an unsafe secret that they know needs to be told so they can stay safe from the grips of an evil babysitter and an unsafe uncle. Together, Lauren and Rodney find the courage to use their voice, and learn an important lesson for kids everywhere: If you’re choking back tears and your heart’s full of fears…you know very well, it’s OK to tell.
Set in the fanciful backdrop of a young girl’s imagination, Lauren’s Kingdom features fantastical imagery and important safety lessons for children and families alike. The animated book also includes one of the Lauren’s Kids’ Foundation’s Safer, Smarter Kids activities, encouraging children to establish a “Trusted Triangle” – three grown-up buddies they can go to when they feel unsafe, icky or not quite right.

Clever, beautiful story and illustrations
This is a great storybook app and the message is told in a way that young children will understand without being confused or scared. Children (and adults) will love the interactive artwork, movements, and sounds throughout the story. Also has a helpful video for parents with information about keeping children safe. Highly recommended!
I am a therapist and I use this app daily with the children I work with. They love hearing Lauren reading her story and love the interactive interface!!! A must have!!
