Harey the rabbit is impatient to get things done, so he doesn’t always think about how dangerous his actions might be. Does the fairy have to be put on top of the tree? No problem – Harey will pile up books on top of a chair to place it there. Have the Christmas lights stopped working? Harey will stop in the middle of washing his hands to see how he can fix them.

Harey doesn’t realize he can get hurt, but his friends know better. They remind him – after he’s already made a mistake – that he needs to think first. But poor Harey will end up at the hospital before Christmas is over.

In the excitement of Christmas Day, kids may not realize they also need to be careful. Reading this funny story about Harey’s accidents will keep them more conscious of safety while enjoying their holiday. Who knew Christmas could be so dangerous?

All DangerSpot books include stickers to place on dangerous items as a reminder for kids to stay safe. These books also include practical tips at the end, so parents can be sure no one gets hurt.
