    This brightly coloured, illustrated title explains to children about body privacy and why private parts should be kept private. Children will learn that their body belongs to them and they can say 'no' if they don't want anyone to touch their body. They'll discover what is inappropriate, and be encouraged to speak up if they are uncomfortable with how other people treat them. It also covers the topic of secrets and when you shouldn't keep a secret.

    The book looks at respecting each other's boundaries and becoming aware that some children, particularly those with autism or anxiety, may find hugging or any kind of touch, unbearable.

    It also covers bullying, such as pinching or kicking, and shows children the best way to speak out to help stop these things happening.

    Written by Louise Spilsbury, the text explains, simply and clearly, without scaremongering, why body privacy is important.
