As a retired social worker I can identify a good therapeutic tool & THIS is it! Perfect for parents of victimized children to use at home. It can be hard to discuss these issues, but with this book, the words are provided. I loved the idea of relating the bad person to a 'monster' who looks like you and me, I loved the rewarding of the child for telling and reinforcing over and over that it is not the kid's fault. I LOVE the Things I Need To Know section and I really loved the poem for the parents which can be used in any parent/child communication.
This short book is jam packed with everything an abused child needs to be told, over and over. For a normal book I would have found the illustrations too simplistic, but for this purpose they were absolutely perfect!
I couldn't believe it when I saw that no one else had rated this magnificent book. You don't just run to the corner store and pick up this sort of book. This is a unique treasure made easy to acquire on Amazon. Perhaps people don't recognize it as a 'special' book - could that fact be included into the title area? Just thinking...I hope people who could use this are not missing out on it. Hopefully, people are buying it and just not reviewing it. Fantastic effort, you did a great job putting this together!
