A book for adults to help children learn about child sexual abuse prevention in a positive, nurturing way.
The second in a series of books for parents to help children avoid sexual abuse. This book is great for youngsters ages five to eight. Again on each page you will find "parent helps" for further discussions.
Since secrecy is the child molester's shield, it stands to reason then, we must educate our children to learn how to avoid or stop this emotionally devastating, degrading abuse.

Elaine Krause is a retired elementary teacher known internationally for writing and producing child sexual abuse prevention curriculum for adults to use with children ages four to eight. "Speak Up, Say No!" features lovable Penelope Peabody Mouse and works well in Head Start classes up to grades one and two.
"For Pete's Sake, Tell" in which Pete Mouse is the main character and includes his cousin Penelope Peabody Mouse illustrates the fact that both boys and girls are often sexually molested and how to be aware, alert, and assertive to possibly prevent this abuse from happening.
Her latest video "Safe At Last" deals with family violence occurring in homes in the presence of children causing devastating physical, verbal, and emotional abuse. For many children abuse is a way of life. It would seem normal that a child would readily tell someone about the abusive situation, but this is usually not the case. "Safe At Last!" again featuring Penelope, her mother, and grandmother is a tool to use to help a child become aware that there is help available for them as well as their family.
This curriculum has been widely used for many years by early elementary educators: Child abuse prevention specialists, Prevention Task Force agencies, counselors, police personnel, church youth teachers and parents. (See krausehouse.org)Review:
