This beautifully illustrated read-aloud story teaches children how to prevent sexual abuse.
I like the way Jimmy's mother has night time chats with her son; she uses this time for roundtable discussions on what constitutes a "good touch" or a "bad touch" and that anything involving force, lying and sadness are all indicators of "bad touches." One important point this book includes is that bad touches are NOT always done by strangers. This is truly one of the best books on the subject and one that will certainly make for a more safety-savvy environment.
I was not sure how to approach the topic with my 4 year olds. This book made it possible to prepare them without scaring them.
Every parent should be pro-active and discuss abuse, this title is sure to open the door to communication. It also does so in a child friendly manner and does not shock or upset even the most conservative reader.
An invaluable and excellent tool for any adult to help educate and arm young innocent children. Perfect addition for any library.
