Product description

This straightforward, thoughtful book about body boundaries offers a tool parents, teachers, and counsellors can use to help children feel, be, and stay safe. The rhyming story and friendly illustrations provide a way to sensitively share and discuss the topic, guiding young children to understand that if someone touches their private parts, they must tell their parent, teacher, or another safe adult.
