I received a copy of God Made All of Me through Litfuse in exchange for a review. All opinions are mine and mine alone, and no other compensation was received.
Sexual abuse is unfortunately an issue in our world. The statistics are very high that you or someone you love has been or will be sexually abused during their lifetime. Something has got to change those numbers.
This book may help you to protect your children.
In God Made All of Me by Justin and Lyndsey Holcomb, your child learns that it is OK to say no about being touched on ways they don’t want like a hug from Grandma, to reporting someone trying to touch them sexually. The book is written in a story form of parents having the safe touch/bad touch talk with their children. Proper terms for body parts are used. This book is a good springboard for parents to teach their children what is and isn’t ok for others to do to them and to give children body autonomy.
The illustrations are bright and simple. They aren’t very complex. And no private areas are illustrated. Children are seen in bathing suits to show that those areas are private parts, and the girl is in a two peice for illustrative purposes.
This is a great book for parents of preschool and early elementary aged children. I just wish there was a book for girls and a separate book for boys.
