Shanti’s Safe Place is not just a regular children’s book, but one that teaches children to be comfortable enough to speak up when things happen to them. In Shanti’s Safe Place, the young protagonist Shanti is feeling anxious about going to a family cookout, but she cannot explain why she is scared and anxious about the venture. Things change when two visitors visit Shanti’s class to talk about children being touched in a bad way. Shanti knows then that she can open up about her story and tell someone all that has been happening to her in the dark. Although opening up was very difficult for Shanti, she is happy with the kind of support and love she gets back after sharing her story with her loved ones.
