BELLYBUTTONS ARE NAVELS
When grandma asks for a bedtime book suggestion, four year-olds John and Megan choose an old favorite, Bellybuttons Are Navels. The book helps them discover some simple truths: boys and girls have some of the same body parts and some that are different, too. All have accurate names. Grandma's calm, confident manner models wholesome discussion.
Bellybuttons Are Navels is designed primarily to illustrate honest adult-child discussion, but also to help children develop healthy acceptance of the total body; to provide a basic vocabulary for introducing the topics of human sexuality, reproduction sexual anatomy and sexual abuse awareness; and to model sex-positive roles for children and adults.
