I am a child trauma therapist for a non-profit child advocacy center. We see children victims of sexual and physical abuse. This is one of THE most well written, comprehensive books for children of all ages. I love the guide discussion questions at the back of the book. This book also teaches that our mouths are private parts too (unlike similar genres/resources I have used previously).
3.0 out of 5 starsBest one I've found, but still needs work

About halfway through it starts to get super serious and stays that way. I understand it's a serious topic, but I think it could still be presented to kids in a lighter tone. We skipped some parts for our 4 year olds and read all of it to our 5 year old. Still looking for the perfect book for this topic.
The book is a little too advanced for my 5-year-old. Not in subject matter, but in writing. I wanted her to be able to read it with me, and there are just way too many words and too much information for such a young kid to grasp.
I bought this book to discuss with my 4 year old and it's a bit too advanced for her to grasp. I read a previous review which praised the ease of the book and I just want others to know this book is perhaps best suited for a 7+ year old.
This book is poorly written. Missing words and strange vocabulary. I have an MEd and before retiring, taught in public school and an adolescent psychiatric facility. It is disturbing to see a book about self-empowerment so badly done.
