A Tool for the Prevention of Childhood Sexual Abuse
Carolyn Byers Ruch
No children’s book alone can protect our kids from abuse. But healthy relationships plus awareness can. Rise and Shine: A Tool for the Prevention of Childhood Sexual Abuse (Faith-based Version)* is a captivating, beautifully illustrated story based on a true story, complete with a protagonist, antagonist and a hero. It will help parents and concerned adults begin to build a bridge of communication regarding sexual violations with the children they love and long to protect. Because children learn best through story.
Please, read this story. Begin the conversation. Build the bridge. Be the hero. So your children, like Ana, the heroine in Rise and Shine, can always sing their songs.
