Without being taught about body boundaries, a child may be too young to understand when abuse is happening—or that it’s wrong. This straightforward, gentle book offers a tool parents, teachers, and counselors can use to help children feel, be, and stay safe. The rhyming story and simple, friendly illustrations provide a way to sensitively share and discuss the topic, guiding young children to understand that their private parts belong to them alone. The overriding message is that if someone touches your private parts, tell your mom, your dad, your teacher, or another safe adult. Color. Grades PreK-3. [8.5" x 8.5"...30 pages]
Do You Have a Secret?
by Jennifer Moore-Malinos (2005, Barron's, 7.99)
Secrets can be fun to keep...if the secret is something that makes you and everybody else happy. Then a secret is something very nice. But if you have a secret that hurts you...a secret that makes you sad or scares you...that's when you would feel much better if you talk about it to somebody you trust. It might be very hard for you to tell such a secret to Mom, or to Dad, or to your teacher. But it's best for you to be brave and talk about it. When you do, the problem can be made to go away. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9.5" x 9.5"...24 pages]
I Said No!: A Kid-to-Kid Guide to Keeping Private Parts Private
Zack and Kimberly King (2008, Boulden, 12.95)
Helping kids set healthy boundaries for their private parts can be a daunting and awkward task for parents, counselors and educators. Written from a kid’s point of view, I Said No! makes this task a lot easier. To help Zack cope with a real-life experience he had with a “friend,” he and his mom wrote a book to help prepare other kids to deal with a range of problematic situations. Using a simple, direct, decidedly “non-icky” approach that doesn’t dumb down the issues involved, as well as an easy-to-use system to help kids rehearse and remember appropriate responses to help keep them safe. Color. Grades 1-4. [8” x 8”...38 pages]

there. Color. Grades K-2. [8” x 9”...24 pages]
