God Made All of Me (Review)
This review is for the book "God Made All of Me" by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb. This book was created for a very simple person. The authors wanted to bring up a topic that is tough for parents to approach with children, and make it easier to bring up this topic and speak on it on a child's level. The book talks about your personal body and how God made it perfectly, but how it is your body. For example, the parents in the book explain to their children that hugging and kissing can be great, but at the same time, you should feel comfortable saying "no" to unwanted hugging and kissing (or any touching). The book encourages kids and parents to come up with a list of adults that kids feel safe talking to if something inappropriate happens.
Unfortunately, this is a topic that needs to be talked about in households. This book is vague enough that parents can feel comfortable reading it out loud, but it will strike up a good conversation. I highly recommend this book for parents with young children.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
