About this deal

My 3 year old is learning lots from this book about emotions, personal space, private parts, and body safety.

It’s crucial for kids to recognize and express their emotions, especially when it comes to feeling safe or unsafe.I wish there were a better way of talking about the difference between secrets and information that’s simply private. These skills empower children, and go a long way in keeping them safe from abuse – ensuring they grow up as assertive and confident teenagers and adults. The children's picture book aims to empower and teach children about personal body safety, feelings, safe and unsafe touch, private parts, secrets and surprises, consent and respect.

Also included in this book are in-depth Discussion Questions to further enhance the learning and to initiate important family conversations around body autonomy. I think I would also include that "private parts" or "no-touch parts" can be anywhere on your body that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don't want anyone to touch. My son’s curiosity about who has what body parts naturally flowed into a conversation about consent and what should be kept private. The teddy bear in this book and the fact that Izzy isn’t drawn overtly girly made for more interesting conversations about gender and private parts. Jay is a mother of three daughters and was a school councillor at her local school for over seven years.

There are a couple of things I would change, like including nipples in the discussion of private parts and using more inclusive language. It’s important to use the correct names for these body parts, even though some people might use funny names. I thought that this book was very accessible and gave some very helpful strategies that are easy to implement. Prevents them from suppressing their emotions and it prompts them to speak up and advocate for them selves.
