God made us, all of us, every freckle, hair, and body part. God not only made every part of us but He made us for a purpose to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. The book God Made All Of Me seeks to demonstrate this concept to young children, in relation to protecting their bodies from unwanted touching and sexual exposure.
Sadly we live in a world which sexual predators live around every corner, sometimes even in our own extended families. Protecting our bodes from other is an important lesson we must all learn, even little ones. Yet this topic, as previously stated, can be extremely difficult due to the complexity of the subject or the sheer awkwardness of the topic. In any case God Made All of Me by Justin and Lidney Holcomb and published by New Growth Press seeks to aid parents, guardians, and child care professionals in teaching children about their body and what they must do to protect it from those who seek to exploit them.
God Made All of Me accomplishes its goal. As a minister to children and families I am always on the lookout for books which aid parents/guardians in ways raise their children in the nature and admonition of the church. God Made All of Me is aimed at children and uses words and illustrations that even the youngest child can understand, to help prevent sexual abuse, and if sexual abuse occurs how to go about reporting it properly.
This might be THE most practical resource I have ever read for children and parents. I wholeheartedly endorse this book to ever parent/guardian who wants to protect their child from sexual abuse and train them hope to handle unwanted sexual situations.
