MY BODY BELONGS TO ME

“Well thought-out and clearly communicated . . . A useful resource.” —Booklist

Acclaimed book, now in English and Spanish, helps adults teach children about abuse, getting help, and how to set boundaries to stay safe.
Without being taught about body boundaries, a child may be too young to understand when abuse is happening—or that it’s wrong. This straightforward, gentle book offers a tool parents, teachers, and counselors can use to help children feel, be, and stay safe. The rhyming story and simple, friendly illustrations provide a way to sensitively share and discuss the topic, guiding young children to understand that their private parts belong to them alone. The overriding message of My Body Belongs to Me is that if someone touches you inappropriately, tell your mom, your dad, your teacher, or another safe adult.

Un libro sobre el cuidado contra el abuso sexual
Sin que se le enseñe acerca de los límites corporales, un niño puede ser demasiado pequeño para comprender cuándo hay un abuso o si está mal. Este libro sencillo y amable ofrece información que los padres, maestros y consejeros pueden utilizar para ayudar a los niños a sentirse, estar y mantenerse seguros. El cuento que rima y las ilustraciones simples y amigables brindan una manera de compartir y discutir el tema con sensibilidad, guiando a los niños pequeños a comprender que sus partes privadas les pertenecen sólo a ellos. El mensaje primordial de Mi cuerpo me pertenece es que si alguien te toca de manera inapropiada, díselo a tu mamá, a tu papá, a tu maestro u otro adulto seguro.
