    From School Library Journal --------------------------- K-GR 3—Clara is growing up, and she is proud of who she is becoming. She is happy and healthy and enjoys spending time with family and friends. There are times that she likes to be touched-tickling with friends, hugging Papa, or snuggling on Granny's lap. However, there are other times when she does not want to be touched, and Clara is confident in her ability to say no. Created by a German organization that provides information on sexuality, relationships, and family planning, this informational picture book is intended to empower children to develop a positive self-image. Readers are also encouraged to speak up when they are uncomfortable with the behaviors of others. Written with a clear, specific text, and illustrated with full-page, colorful paintings, it gives children the "good touch, bad touch" message in a safe and comforting manner. The beginning contains a message for adults from the International Center for Assault Prevention, recommending the book as a teaching tool for self-awareness and empowerment. Resources for adults are listed at the end of the book. An effective instrument for general nonfiction or picture-book shelves.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) About the Author ---------------- The International Center for Assault Prevention (ICAP) is a thirty-year-old international prevention program that works with and trains children, parents, and teachers to prevent peer assault, stranger abduction, and known adult assault.
