Everyone's got a bottom - A book about protective behaviours
It is so important that as parents we educate and help our children develop skills to keep themselves safe. Everyone's got a bottom teaches children the real names for body parts, about safe secrets, boundaries, touch and about networks. It encourages them to talk when they feel hurt or unsafe.
There is a little rhyme that is repeated throughout the book to reinforce a message to children that only they can touch and see their private parts, not others.
I love the cute illustrations and the large print. It is a story about three siblings, Ben, Jack and Emma (who is a baby). They talk about kisses, hugs, body parts, having a shower, looking after yourself and rules. This book is a must have for every parent. For ages 3 to 8. RRP AUD$19.90
