God Made All of Me

by Justin S. & Lindsey A. Holcomb

It’s easy to convey the message to children that their bodies–or particular parts of their bodies–are shameful. This misconception fuels confusion, embarrassment, & secrecy, & often prevents children from recognizing or reporting sexual abuse. God Made All of Me is a simply-told, beautifully-illustrated story to help families talk about these sensitive issues with two- to eight-year-old children. The book equips parents to talk with both boys & girls about their bodies & to help them understand the difference between the appropriate & inappropriate touch of others. God Made All of Me allows families to build a first line of defense against sexual abuse in the safety of their own homes.
