Helping to provide everyone with a role in protecting children with advice on how to talk to them about staying safe is something that sits at the very heart of the NSPCCâ€™s mission. Christinaâ€™s book, which is available for reference in the NSPCC Library, reinforces this essential behaviour that we so encourage children to learn. We wish Christina all the best with this great resource.

Brillintly thought through. Compatible With children, parents, carers and teachers alike. Well done!!
Brill idea for a book
An important book which deals sensitively with a very difficult subject. Brilliantly written and illustrated.
I believe that this book should be in every child setting.
Rhyme makes it special and there is certainly a need for such a book.
This is a great way of getting this important message across to children. We heard you speaking on BBC Sheffield, and think you are doing fantastic work.
Fantastic book about the voice of the child. A must for all schools and parents
What a superb book to deal with an important child protection message. Love this book!
My friend suffered in silence for years. Anything that could help get the message across to children on this issue, gets my vote. Good luck.
We are big supporters of the NSPCC and their campaigns. We are very encouraged by this publication that will help to educate and protect our children.
Our children are aged 3 and 18 months. We will certainly have this book in our home library.
Having known people who have been abused, this book could help many children before it's too late.
A brilliant book that absolutely hits the issue of sexual abuse on the head in a way that is not only sensitive to the age of the child reading the book but also in a way that makes the subject less taboo and something that can be talked about openly and without a feeling of shame or guilt.
A must book in our household.
A very important topic. I will be buying this for my niece.
A book like this for children has been long overdue. Good luck.
Very inspiring way of getting the message across.

We have shipped our book to relatives in New York, who will find this very useful. Good luck. It is also great to see that the NSPCC have endorsed.
A deserving win, good luck.
