BUYING ADVISORY: EL, MS, HS - ESSENTIAL
AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH
Dr. Roberts dives right into a discussion of privacy and modesty and the many different facets of knowing who should see or touch or bodies and that you are in charge of your own body.
I love this book so much. Whatever grade level your students are in, this is a perfect book to share in a maturation class and a good refresher for an adult about how to talk to students about these issues. I also applaud the inclusion of a gender neutral character both in the discussion and the illustrations.
