Some of the best protective behaviours story books for children

Here you will find a list of protective behaviours story books that will help you to empower your child with the knowledge and skills to prevent child sexual abuse. 

Books can be a great resource for parents who are struggling with  starting this tricky conversation. You'll find a collection of protective behaviours story books that cover a range of different topics that are relevant: body safety, secrets, public and private, early warning signs, persistence, personal space, secrets, feelings, safety team, touch, saying no and more. You'll also find some books that will teach you what to do!

You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today. 

You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children

And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.

NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.
