  1. 5 out of 5


    I purchased a copy of this book several years ago at the Child Abuse Symposium in Atlanta at a Self Esteem Shop display. It has proven to be extremely helpful to the staff at our two week day camp for children who have been sexually abused. The activities are simple to adapt for various ages and the children related very well to the content. The book is now beginning to show some wear but we will continue to use it each summer.
