Shannon Riggs and Jamie Zollars have teamed up to create a book that deals with the topic of sexual abuse in a way that will resonate with those that need it the most--the victims themselves. And will teach all children the information they need to keep themselves safe from abusive situations. When Regina enters Room 204 she feels safe there. Mrs. Salvador has rules. All the children are told to keep there desks neat and their bodies to themselves. After a stranger danger unit where Mrs. Salvador shares that strangers aren't the only ones that can harm children, Regina tells Mrs. Salvador she is being touched inappropriately.

The theme of the book is not only important one, but the artwork is absolutely stunning. The overall design is also great. This book is an excellent example of design, illustration and text working tgether artfully and seamlessly.

The writing is excellent - there is a fair amount of text, but somehow it feels very economical -- every word is well-chosen. The subject matter is handled extremely well and with a lot of sensitivity, but it in no way panders to the reader at all. The writing assumes intelligence of the reader. The illustrations do, too - they sometimes tell additional 'story' not outlined in the text, but always in an understated, gracious way. I agree with the other reviewer that this is an important book -- every library should really have a copy of this book.
This book is a must for any school or public library. Children should be able to freely access it, as it might just be the encouragement they need to step forward. Shannon Riggs handles a delicate and disturbing topic with comfort and consolation that empowers children. Thank you Shannon for writing this book.
