What a great way for parents to talk to kids about their bodies. "God Made All of Me" by Justin & Lindsey Holcomb is "a book to help children protect their bodies". It's easy, straightforward and honest way to discuss with your children the importance of speaking up and be open about unwanted physical touches. The illustrations are colorful, and the words simple to understand, even for a younger child.
With the rise of sexual abuse of children, it's imperative for parents to address body "issues" and the protection of their private and other physical parts. This includes how to deal with and the difference between secrets and surprises if there was unwanted touches. Justin and Lindsey Holcomb has created a resource that is a good starting point for families to touch on. However, do take note that this is not a storybook that should be misplaced or be easily accessible with younger kids. This is because of the various notes, statistics and points for adults to read before and after reading this story to the child. This is a storybook to be read by the adult and sharing the pictures while reading. I would suggest an adult to read through the book first and be familiar with it prior to reading it with a child(ren). The Bible verses throughout reinforce the title, "God Made All of Me". A great resource and a must have for every family and even daycare or young grade settings.
