About the Poison Prevention Site
This Poison Prevention Web site is designed for children aged 4 to 7 under the guidance of their parents.
This site contains two sections, one for kids and one for adults. In the "For Kids" section, you will find information about what poisons are, who can be poisoned, how poisoning happens, and where poisons can be found. In addition, there are a number of fun activities: games, coloring books and more. In the "Big People" section, adults can find tips for parents, teachers and librarians, poison proofing tips, what you should do if someone is poisoned, a list of poison preventiion centers in the United States, and additional resources on the Internet.
