Children's book – My Private Parts Belong to Me!

This book teaches children how to protect their bodies and their privacy. It clarifies their rights over their own body and explains how to avoid potential harm. The friendly and approachable story addresses this vital yet sensitive subject in a format crafted especially for children in the primary grades.

 

Guy and Tammy come home from school and tell Mom that they learned about the private parts of their body: parts that "belong only to us, and no one else is allowed to touch them." Mom and the kids talk about it, and along the way they learn what private parts are, as well as what kind of touch is permitted and what's not. They also learn about good secrets and bad ones, and whom they can approach for help.

How to share with kids a difficult issue with Charm and Grace (and inviting images)
This kids book succeeds to address a difficult topic with charm and grace. Guy and Tammi come home from school and share with their mother what they learned about their bodies. They learned about private parts, what is allowed and what is not, what is a bad secret and what is a good secret, and what to do in case someone tries to touch and make you do something that you don't want to do (Say NO loud and clear!!).

A must have book for young kids
In today's world we are struggling to keep our kids safe and away from all the dangers the world presents to them. Unfortunately Sexual Harassment is a huge challenge, which makes it difficult to explain young kids. This books succeed in its gentle way to help young kids understand right from wrong. It helps them identify red flags and most important to address concerns openly to a responsible adult who can protect them.

Great book on a delicate subject
I thought this book was great in handling a sensitive topic and also did a great job of educating children. I really like how the author put it in the child's perspective and had them teach the parent - genius! I will definitely be using this book when it's time to teach my children about this topic. Thank you for writing such a helpful book for us to use to educate our children

A must in any family with kids
I know the Hebrew version of this book for a while and I am so happy that finally, I can recommend it to English speaking friends. I have 3 daughters and this book helped us start a conversation about private parts and later on about consent. As an educator, I find the language and the content to be very clear and very approachable.
Totaly recommend
