My Body Belongs to Me

Written by Jill Starishevsky

Illustrated by Angela Padron

Free Spirit Publishing, 2014


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.
