Within the pages of Lou Crouch’s book, Beautifully and Wonderfully Made ($14.99, paperback, 9781545639450; $3.99, e-book, 9781545639467), parents will find a book written to help them talk to their children about sexual predators and private body parts.
In the story, it’s Lucy’s ninth birthday party. She is excited her older cousin, Camilla, is staying overnight. Camilla does something that confuses and frightens Lucy. She must find the courage to tell the secret, while she’s not sure her dog Odis will be safe.
“Far too many children are sexually abused,” said Crouch. “One out of four girls and one out of six boys before their 18th birthday. The shocker is 95% of the victims know their predator. We need to teach children to tell someone if this happens to them.”
Beautifully and Wonderfully Made contains specific “Parents Say” prompts throughout the story help parents know what to say.
Lou Crouch’s 40-year career has been devoted to children. She has trained and mentored teachers with UT-Houston Heath Science Center Literacy Grant and Region 10 ESC, served on regional childcare advisory committees, teaching, and always standing up for children.
