We Can Keep Our Bodies Safe! A Coloring & Activities Book With STICKERS!
While children have fun matching stickers to the activity pages in this book, they learn about good and bad touches; when someone such as a parent, doctor, or nurse might need to touch their body parts; and how to say no if touching makes them uncomfortable. They're also encouraged to talk to an adult they trust if something happens that makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Includes a sheet with more than 40 full-color stickers; on the back of the sheet are instructions for use, answers to activities, and tips for supporting learning that help get parents and other caregivers involved.  English and Spanish.
