Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This is a wonderful book to help parents and teachers deal with young children on the subject of sexual abuse. With appealing illustrations and simple text, it aids children in understanding the difference between "good and bad" touching by others. Written by a licensed social worker, it includes a brief introduction to parents to help prepare them for introducing this subject to their children without overdoing it.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2This book is positive and assertive without being frightening. It lets young children know that it's all right for them to choose when, and by whom, they are to be touched. It goes on to define "private parts" as "the places on your body covered by a bathing suit," and states that they should never be touched by people other than medical personnel and adults helping with bathroom functions. The prefatory note to parents is an important one as it reminds them to trust a child's instincts and concerns related to unwanted touching. Weidner's simple watercolors are adequately rendered and are appropriate to the content. Even with its basic vocabulary and limited scope, this book will need to be, and should be, shared one-on one.Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CA

    Helpful as a good introduction tool

    I found this book to be very helpful as a good introduction to the topic of body awareness, expression and protection of self. I started using it when my first child was very young (3). I now read it once in a while to both of my children (5 & 8) to keep the information fresh in their minds. The discussion of the topics brought up in the book should not stop there for parents and their children though. The wonderful thing about the book is that it brings up the issues without being scary and encourages children to talk more, which should always be encouraged.
