A book to empower and teach children about personal body safety, feelings, safe and unsafe touch, private parts, secrets and surprises, consent, and respectful relationships.

Through age-appropriate illustrations and engaging text, this book will empower children by teaching them crucial skills in personal body safety. This in turn will help protect them from inappropriate touch.

Approximately 20% of girls, and 8% of boys will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday (Pereda, et al, 2009). Parents, caregivers, and educators have a duty of care to protect children by teaching them Body Safety skills. These skills empower children, and go a long way in keeping them safe from abuse -- ensuring they grow up as assertive and confident teenagers and adults.

The crucial skills taught in this book will empower children to say in a strong and clear voice, "This is my body! What I say goes!"

Best suited to children aged 3 to 9 years.
