There is both good and evil in this world, and unfortunately, our precious children can be exposed to and experience some very dark and terrible things--nothing any child should have to endure. It’s of the utmost importance that our children have a safe haven and that we teach them that they indeed have a voice and can express when they are hurt, scared, or abused. They need to learn who to trust and how to know the difference. They need to feel heard and understood, and we adults need to take children’s words and actions seriously and do all in our power to protect them.
In this book, you will meet Joetta and her three woodland puppets. Through these puppets and their stories, children will learn what is and what is not appropriate behavior. And what to do if faced with similar situations. They will learn that they can use their voice to say “Stop!” “No!” and to tell people until they are heard.
For maximim effect, use this book along with the puppets and You Have a Voice wristband listed below in the Recommended Resources.
