Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Endorsed by many child abuse prevention programs and counselors, this read-aloud storybook helps children to recognize and avoid inappropriate touching. By validating the child's innate warning system, The Right Touch provides a powerful tool for preventing sexual abuse.

Synopsis:

The Right Touch reaches far beyond the usual scope of a children's picture book. It is a parenting book that introduces a very difficult topic — the sexual abuse of young children. This gentle, thoughtful story is meant to be read aloud by a trusted caregiver.

In the story, young Jimmy's mom explains the difference between touches that are positive and touches that are secret, deceptive, or forced. She tells him how to resist inappropriate touching, affirming that abuse is not the child's fault.

The introduction provides valuable information about sexual abuse and guidance on what to do if your child experiences an abusive situation. Jody Bergsma's delightful illustrations soften the impact of the story, yet this portrayal of a dangerous situation is very realistic. If your child is old enough to sit still and listen to a story, he or she is old enough for The Right Touch.

Synopsis:

Giving caregivers a gentle, thoughtful tool to help prevent child sexual abuse, "The Right Touch" revolves around Jimmy, whose mother gently explains how to protect himself from improper touching by strangers.

Synopsis:

A comforting "first step" in helping children learn how to avoid sexual abuse. Endorsed by many child abuse prevention programs and counselors.
