My Body Is Mine! is a one-of-a-kind picturebook created especially to help parents teach children what they need to know to protect themselves from child abuse and sexual predators. Told through the eyes of 6-year-old Michael, who is about to attend his first sleep-over party, My Body Is Mine! recounts the wisdom Michael's parents give him about self-defense, Internet dangers, and unacceptable touching. "My dad explains, 'Any part of your body that your underwear or swimsuit covers is private. If anyone should try to touch your private parts or ask you to touch his or hers, say NO or STOP, then run and tell a trusted adult. This kind of behavior is a type of child abuse, and it is very unsafe.' 'Dad, would I be in trouble if someone ever tried to touch me in that way?' 'Absolutely not! It would never be your fault if someone tried to harm you.'" Color photographs illustrate this safety-conscious picturebook, an absolute "must-have" for parents to share with children, who are never too young to learn how to protect themselves from being victimized.
