The Swimsuit Lesson* came recommend to us by a lady who teaches child safety. I borrowed it using the inter-library loan system and read it to Gracia. It’s a great book for teaching kids about private parts being….well…private! In a simple and kid-friendly way the mom in the book teaches her kids that nobody should touch them in any place that their swimsuits cover.
God has given us adults the huge job of protecting kids, but all to often, because of our own embarrassment we don’t ever talk to them about protecting themselves from sexual abuse. While this book isn’t the only way to talk to young kids, it can definitely be a great tool in helping!
