May is water safety and drowning prevention month, and everyone can make a difference in drowning prevention in and out of the water!

Prevent Drowning Foundation of San Diego has compiled a list of 50 children's books in the Book Pool that can be part of the lifelong family discussion of water and water safety.

Water Safety books provide specific water safety information. For example, one favorite - Josh the Baby Otter - has kids pledge, "I promise to get an adult when I get near the water." Here a link from the National Drowning Prevention Alliance.
