Note to caregivers 

We recommend that you preview books before reading them to children, and be prepared for questions the children may have. Not all books cover all aspects of safety for children, so reading a variety of books helps you open doors of communication with children about many difficult topics. By reading these books with them, it affords children permission to talk about body parts and safety, and removes stigma from the topic. Start conversations with children about their bodies and body safety at their developmental level. Use correct names for all body parts—including genitalia—to empower children to tell you if they experience any inappropriate, uncomfortable or confusing touches.
