Loving Touches

by Lory Freeman

illustrated by Carol Deach

This gentle book reinforces the importance of touch and helps children understand how to ask for the kinds of touches they want: a hug, a kiss or a lap to sit on.

A classic that is recommended by the Minnesota Center against Violence and Abuse, Polly Klaas Foundation, Child Life Council, Rape Crisis Center of Milford (CT), and NHS Forth Valley Health Promotion of Stirling, Scotland, Loving Touches teaches children to respect other people’s bodies, too. It pictures people of different ages, ethnic groups and physical abilities.
