I introduced my daughter to topics such as body safety, consent, and body image, around the age of three. I think it is a good age to start talking about the body. I referred to several YouTube videos and books, to choose simple enough words and images, appropriate for a preschooler. While there is no dearth of books covering this sensitive subject, there is a pressing need and growing awareness among parents and teachers about the introduction of these topics to young children. Despite having read many such books, I was curious to see how the book Your Body is Yours tackles this subject and what novelty it brings to the table.
