My Body Belongs To Me

The story is a simple scenario involving a child who is inappropriately touched by an uncle’s friend. The powerful message really comes through when the youngster tells on the offender and the parents praise the child’s bravery. The last page shows a proud, smiling child doing a "strong arm" pose. The text assures the child that it was not their fault and by speaking out the child will continue to grow big and strong. It is a compelling and uplifting message. Parents, carers and educators can use this book as a tool to facilitate an open dialogue with youngsters.
