1. Your Body Belongs to You - Written by a clinical social worker and child/family therapist, this book appeals to the young ones with it's illustrations and simple language. The language might be simple, but the message is clear - Your body belongs to you and it's ok to say no when you don't want to "share" it.
2. It's MY Body: A Book to Teach Young Children How to Resist Uncomfortable Touch (Children's safety series & abuse prevention) - Again, meant for kids are young as preschoolers, the art and language in this book are simple. The book explains the difference between good touch and bad touch and teaches the kid how to respond to an unwanted touch.
3. The Right Touch: A Read-Aloud Story to Help Prevent Child Sexual Abuse (Jody Bergsma Collection) - This book won the Benjamin Franklin award as a best parenting book and since then has been a highly recommended resource to have when you want to have the talk with your child. In Kelven's own words - "Talking to kids about sexual abuse isn't easy. Parents are afraid they'll say too much or say the wrong thing. My books deliver the prevention lesson, offering concrete information in a warm and accepting context while indirectly showing the children that their parents are open to talking sexual abuse. If kids are going to tell when something happens, they need to know parents will listen, will believe them and will not turn the tables, blaming the child who tells."
5. Those are MY Private Parts - This one is my personal favorite. The illustrations in this book resemble a little kid's drawings. It is simple and colorful and yet, conveys the messages perfectly. The rhyming pattern in the book makes it fun for the kids.
6. I Said No! A Kid-to-kid Guide to Keeping Private Parts Private - Not pictured in the set above because I forgot to grab it off the shelf when I took the picture. But this is a slightly more verbose book for an older kid. The book is written from Zack's point of view and makes it more relatable for the kids.
These are the books that I read with my daughter once every few weeks. Even though they all emphasize pretty much the same message, I like to keep a variety of books because my daughter tends to get bored of reading the same book over and over again. Different books appeal to her at different points of time and it's interesting what she takes away from each book after she reads it.
