Books To Teach Children About Body Safety

Teaching children Protective Behaviours and Body Safety in age and developmentally appropriate ways doesn't take away a child's innocence, it helps to protect it.

Teaching children the correct terms for the private parts of their body can be one of the first conversations we start to educate our children about their amazing body and body safety.

Everyone's Got A Bottom

Everyone's Got A Bottom is a perfect tool for parents and carers to gently start conversations with children about personal safety. The book uses correct anatomical terms and emphasises that children can always talk about their bodies or any concerns they may have with their parents or another trusted adult. It helps parents and carers teach children to keep safe in a style that is fun, positive and protective.

Everyone's Got A Bottom

Only For Me

Only for Me was written in consultation with child protection experts, adult survivors of child abuse and countless parents. It is designed to enable parents, carers and educators to empower young children with the critical information that they need to know in a rhyming, child-friendly manner.
