ABOUT THE BOOK

We want our children to be safe and happy, but sometimes that means having to talk to them about uncomfortable things. The Watch Out! series was born out of an effort to help parents and other adults start conversations with their kids about tricky topics. This book is the first in the series.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Child sexual abuse is a difficult yet necessary topic of conversation with kids. This book, which is part of The Watch Out! Series, broaches the subject through a simple story, meant to be read out to or read with children.
  • It’s important to note that this isn’t a comprehensive manual on CSA, and how to prevent or deal with it – it’s a conversation starter. It deals with a very important first step, one that is often omitted while educating children about consent and their bodies, that is, to protest and protest LOUDLY whenever they feel uncomfortable.
  • Large, colourful illustrations and minimal text make it an attractive package for young children to pick up and rifle through.
  • There are some discussion and activity suggestions for adults to continue from where the book leaves off. This will be helpful to those who need extra guidance on talking about CSA with children.

CONCLUSION

A simple book, but an important one that helps parents, carers, teachers and other adults to educate young children about boundaries when it comes to their bodies.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
