The Right Touch reaches far beyond the usual scope of a children's picture book. It is a parenting book that introduces a very difficult topic -- the sexual abuse of young children. This gentle, thoughtful story is meant to be read aloud by a trusted caregiver.In the story, young Jimmy's mom explains the difference between touches that are positive and touches that are secret, deceptive, or forced. She tells him how to resist inappropriate touching, affirming that abuse is not the child's fault.The introduction provides valuable information about sexual abuse and guidance on what to do if your child experiences an abusive situation. Jody Bergsma's delightful illustrations soften the impact of the story, yet this portrayal of a dangerous situation is very realistic. If your child is old enough to sit still and listen to a story, he or she is old enough for The Right Touch.
