It's My Body

Louise Spilsbury
Authors:
Louise Spilsbury

This brightly coloured, illustrated title explains to children about body privacy and why private parts should be kept private.

They'll discover what is inappropriate, and be encouraged to speak up if they are uncomfortable with how other people treat them. It also covers the topic of secrets and when you shouldn't keep a secret.The book looks at respecting each other's boundaries and becoming aware that some children, particularly those with autism or anxiety, find hugging or any kind of touch, unbearable.It also covers bullying, such as pinching or kicking, and shows children the best way to speak out to help stop these things happening.Written by Louise Spilsbury, the text explains, simply and clearly, without scaremongering, why body privacy is important.

A love story for everyone who loves books.'One of the loveliest, most exquisitely beautiful books I've read in a very long time ... I didn't just read the pages, I lived in them' Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright PlacesTwo teens find their way back to each other in a bookstore full of secrets and crushes, grief and hope - and letters hidden between the pages. Years ago, Rachel had a crush on Henry Jones. The day before she moved away, she tucked a love letter into his favourite book in his family's bookshop. She waited. But Henry never came. Now Rachel has returned to the city - and to the bookshop - to work alongside the boy she'd rather not see, if at all possible, for the rest of her life. But Rachel needs the distraction. Her brother drowned months ago, and she can't feel anything anymore. As Henry and Rachel work side by side - surrounded by books, watching love stories unfold, exchanging letters between the pages - they find hope in each other. Because life may be uncontrollable, even unbearable sometimes. But it's possible that words, and love, and second chances are enough.
