Some of the most difficult things to talk about are also the most important. Sexual abuse happens more often than people realize but most kids don’t learn about it until after it happens. This book will help give them the language to understand what sexual abuse is and start the conversation around owning their bodies and trusting their instincts.
Evelyn Yang (she/her) is a mom to 2 boys and an advocate for families. She is passionate about justice, neurodiversity, and food. Her platform and advocacy work have been an unexpected blessing after her husband ran for president. She still actively works on overcoming her own fears and uses her experiences to help people.

I appreciated how this book broke down the topic.
I read this book to my 5 year old and I was terrified. I thought she would become paranoid or would say “this has happened to me”. While the book cannot control the latter, she took all the information in as fact and I am so grateful.
I heard her joking with her dad a few days later and she said “I’ll take a picture of my butt” and her dad said “we don’t take pictures of people’s butts” to which she said “oh yeah. That’s sexual abuse”.
I am eternally grateful for a comprehensive book that broke it down in ways I personally could not.
This is something we all fear for our children! I loved being able to be open with my child about the importance of body safety for himself and others. He asked important questions and I really felt good afterwards knowing if something were to happen he'd be comfortable enough to speak with me about it but also knowledgeable enough to help prevent anything from happening as well.
I am very glad we bought this book for our 7 and 9 year old. We have already had many discussions regarding body safety, safe touch, and secrets but this solidified a lot of ideas for them. They both asked for other books in the series as well.
While the book is helpful and well written, it is extremely disappointing that it does not introduce readers to proper anatomical terms.
