About "Catie the Caterpillar"
Catie the Caterpillar's simple, straightforward language and colorful illustrations realistically portray the scenario of child sexual abuse, integrating the lines typically used by perpetrators and the guilt feelings and withdrawal of the victim into a story that demonstrates the need to express rather than suppress feelings. Talking about abuse is only the first step to recovery, so Catie's story is followed by discussion questions to further facilitate the therapeutic process and bring to life God's real and constant love for us all. This book can be used as part of a curriculum on abuse for children.
