Listen To Me: Physical Child Abuse – Young Brian comes to the aid of his little sister, Lizbeth, and his friend, Jeffery, when he seeks outside help for physical child abuse.

Through the help of a school counselor and an abuse agency, Brian’s family learns to deal with their problem and shows all children that there is help available — help that can make a change. “Insightful explanations, will involve both adults and children in community groups and school settings.” — Booklist. “Gives a clear definition of child abuse and demonstrates when parents have gone beyond those boundaries.
