Lory Freeman (now Lory Britain) has tackled tough topics in all of her books. It's MY Body, written when her children were young, was one of the first children's books to cover sexual abuse. Now a director of a respite nursery, Dr. Britain is also the author of Loving Touches, which discusses positive touching and respect for others' bodies, and the new My Grandma Died, which explains death and the grieving process to very young children.Review:
