    Interview with Author, Keba Cairo

Keba didn’t stop by teaching her own kids about safety, she then published a children’s book entitled: Don’t Snooze On Clues! (2014), which encourages ALL children to “speak out.” The book is a fun and easy way for educators and parents alike to start what can be considered a “difficult” conversation on safety.

    Keba has shifted her career focus full-time to protecting the welfare of children across the country. She visits schools, camps, libraries, and after-school programs encouraging and teaching children the book’s theme (and New York City’s slogan) “If you see something, say something.”
