Love this book! Teaches littles about proper names for body parts, what they are for and who is allowed to touch them/ what to do if someone is touching them or taking pictures. Great rhyming and kid friendly
The rhyming aspect of this book is an unexpected touch, but it is a bit jarring given the serious tone of the content. That said, the book makes gpod points, but it is a bit more forward about things than I feel is necessary for a 4 year old, so I will be expurgating portions of it. Even allowing for an older child audience, I do think that making the point that no one should photograph genitals or put them on the computer is maybe something not to be discussed in verse. The end of the book actually also sort of assumes the child being read to will be a victim as it describes what will happen after you tell a trusted adult. I don't know that that is needed. There is a nice page for the child to write the names of 5 trusted adults they can talk to. I appreciate that a lot, but this is definitely a book parents and care givers will want to review carefully to make sure they want to share all or some of the content.
My daughter is 5 and this is one of her favorite books to read. Some may think it’s “too much” for kids but I think it’s perfect. It was the best way for us to start this conversation of what’s safe and what’s not safe and how to listen to your body’s natural way of telling you something isn’t right. It does give proper anatomy which I also love. We used “cute words” and I regretted doing so, so this was a good way to transition her to the proper words. It’s so important that our children know what’s not okay so if something happens they are able to come to us or someone they trust. Hands down - every daycare and elementary classroom should have this book!!
This book was recommended on TikTok. Unfortunately it wasn’t offered through the seller so I bought it from a book depository which meant a higher cost (paid shipping and higher taxes). So glad I did. This book helped me have important conversations. I have 2 preschool aged children and I also teach at a preschool. Children start to become curious about body parts around this age. Equally, children that have limited knowledge of their or others’ body parts can be targets for abuse. Thus, we have to teach children about their bodies, tricky people and not keeping secrets about our bodies. This book does all of that.
Great book- simple and to the point, but covers a lot of potential questions! It allowed for a low pressure conversation with my four year old daughter afterword that was positive, and showed she really understood the main points that we hoped she’d understand. Would totally recommend!!
