The teacher at the Ant Hill School wants her students to be prepared – for everything!

One day, she teaches her students what to do if a “dangerous someone” is in their school.

“Class, my teacher said to us, we need to learn a new drill. It’s called The Sheep, The Shepherd and the Wolf, so get ready…here’s the deal! I’ll be your shepherd, and you’re all my sheep, so you must do what I say. Pretend there’s a wolf in our building, and we MUST stay out of his way. We need a great plan of action in case we start to get scared. The A.L.I.C.E. Plan will work the best, to help us be prepared.”

Unfortunately, in the world we now live in, we must ask ourselves the essential question: What options do I have for survival, if I ever find myself in a violent intruder event?

I’m Not Scared…I’m Prepared! enhances the concepts taught by the ALICE Training Institute, and make them applicable to children of all ages in a non-fearful way. By using this book, children can develop a better understanding of what needs to be done if they ever encounter a “dangerous someone.”
