"The rules of physical contact can be tricky to grasp, especially for children with special needs who are at a heightened risk of abuse. This delightfully illustrated and friendly picture book simply and clearly explains how to tell the difference between acceptable and inappropriate touch, thereby helping keep the child with special needs safe. With five stories that cover different types of touch, from accidental to friendly to hurtful, this book will help children understand when and where it is okay to touch other people, when and where other people can touch them, why self-touching sometimes needs to be private, and, importantly, what to do if touch feels inappropriate. The book also contains a sixth story that deals with the issues surrounding the use of cameras and recording devices." - BOOK JACKET
