Simple explanations for young children about body privacy and why private parts should be kept private

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.

It’s My Body also talks about respecting the boundaries of those around us, and understanding that different people have different boundaries. It not only focuses on the more serious aspects of having the right to protect your own body, but also explains how some children, particularly those on the autistic spectrum or who have anxiety, may find the smallest of gestures- a hug or a pat on the arm, or any kind of touching- unbearable.
The book also covers bullying and explains to children the best ways in which they can speak out and seek help to stop these events from occurring, as well as the topic of secrets and when you shouldn't keep a secret.


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