This book addresses the most often misunderstood piece in the puzzle of the sexual victimization of children, and that is acquaintance molestation.
In a non-offensive manner, it takes the extremely sensitive issue of child-molestation and presents it in a way that gives the victim power and strength.
This book can be used to teach children and adults to recognize and prevent traps set by acquaintance molesters.
It can also be used as a diagnostic and therapy tool helping to relieve blame and guilt for both child and parent.
This is a well-written, well-illustrated book that uses simple language to gently approach a difficult subject in a non-threatening manner. It succeeds in being able to open a conversation with a child who may have been victimized without planting thoughts in that childs mind. Every professional who works with children should have a copy of this book in their library. It will definitely be in mine.”

“The Kid Trapper is revolutionary in that it not only offers healing for the innocent child, but prevention of this heinous crime against children. Beautifully illustrated in a manner that will educate and not intimidate; The Kid Trapper can be used with a child of any age.
This book is a powerful gift for parents, educators and all other professionals who work with children. I highly endorse this book and Julia Cook for the courage to write about this most hidden epidemic in America.”
