Book Review: Everyone’s Got a Bottom


This wonderful little book for children of all ages introduces the concepts of body boundaries, self-care, and privacy, provides simple illustrations of typical male and female external genitals, and accurately names the genitals. It emphasizes the importance of children being able to talk openly with adults they trust about these concepts and their bodies and includes additional information for parents regarding prevention and detection of sexual abuse. Sex educator Cath Hakanson has created a video of herself reading Everyone’s Got a Bottom here. The book is only available from the Australian distributor, Lighthouse Resources.
