As a parent, I am very grateful to Jayneen Sanders for creating such a necessary and helpful resource for teaching young children about body safety and autonomy.My Body! What I Say GOES! is a must-have for every family bookshelf. It discusses a range of topics from feelings, to body safety, to surprises versus secrets, safety networks, correct anatomical names for private parts, and more.It uses child-friendly language and is taught in a conversational manner by the narrator/main character - a young girl named Izzy.This book isn't a story book but it is written in a manner that makes it suitable for reading time.The book also includes several suggested discussions in the back which can help guide you in having a teaching moment with your child.The artwork by Anna Hancock is friendly and inviting.I cannot recommended this book highly enough!

Such a great book and addition to a wonderful collection of Child Protection and Body Safety books. My son loves these books, and as an early reader really enjoys the gorgeous illustrations that fuel his imagination and connection with the text.This book covers everything that should be in a child's toolkit for life - early warning signs, secrets vs surprises, body bubbles, safety networks, unsafe pictures, bodily autonomy, safe and unsafe feelings, as well as tips on greeting relatives in ways other than hugging and kissing.Yes, there are plenty of quality books on the market on this subject, but this is an absolute stand out with my son and other children I've shared it so far. These books tackle the tough topics while kids feel happy, engaged and empowered through it all.

As a teacher and managing director of an organisation that is passionate about teaching protective behaviours/body safety education to children, I can see 'MY BODY! What I say GOES! as being the one 'go to' book for all parents of young children. I'm already recommending it to everyone I meet. This book covers all aspects of personal safety and abuse prevention in a non-threatening and fun manner, with appealing illustrations and clear, simple text. If you haven't started empowering your children yet, buy this book and start today.
