Sis & Me: Down by the Sea
A Book about Boundaries, Safe Touches, and Child Sexual Abuse Prevention
Written and illustrated by the Center for Prevention of Abuse
Sis & Me: Down by the Sea is CFPA’s premier age-appropriate children’s story that teaches young children about body safety. As Sister and Brother enjoy a day at the beach, they encounter a variety of friends who help them learn about safe and unsafe touches, consent, and boundaries. While on their ocean adventure, they learn four important body safety rules: Say No, Get Away, Tell Someone, and Be Believed!
1 in 4 females and 1 in 6 males experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. We hope this story helps you begin the conversation with children about ways to keep their bodies safe. The “Resources After Reading” section of this book provides caregivers with additional ways to keep the conversation going.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales support CFPA’s mission of helping all people live free from violence and abuse.
