HOW TO USE THE BOOKS.

It is most important to educate the Parents and Child Protection Workers (Tutors) about the Story of the functions and importance of our openings PRIOR to the book being given to children.
 
It is recommended that Tutors start the conversation about the openings with Facial Openings, (Ears, Nose and Mouth) as this is less sensitive and personal.

As the tuition proceeds the Children may inquire about their other openings or the Tutors may gently incorporate the other openings into the tuition.

Parents can educate children using the correct anatomical names as the lesson progresses if jthey feel it will help.
 
When the children are shown the book and other material, (e.g. the slide show presentation) because the Tutors are already aware of the story, they are prepared for questions the children may ask.
 
Tutors should also be made aware of the value of the books as an interactive tool and should be encouraged to interact with the Children through colouring in the book. This gently opens the door to education of the functions and importance of our openings and is also intended to be fun.
 
Because both Teachers and Parents had been given training beforehand and are aware what the story is about, the children learn very quickly and effectively.
 
Because of the sensitivity of this message some Parents may be uncomfortable teaching it.
If this is found to be so, it is recommended that a Friend, Child Protection Worker or Social Worker, may be more suitable to help teach the children the Koala and Bunny Message.
 
It is also recommended that Parents and Child Protection Workers be asked directly if they are comfortable teaching this message and if there is any hesitation, it may be in the best interest of the child for the Tutoring to be allotted to another person.
 
 PREFACE
Use the story of “Why openings in our bodies are special” as a guide to educate in your own way, about the functions and importance of the openings in our bodies.
You can use the information in “Why openings in our bodies are special” as the foundation for a quiz to interact with children and bring some fun into the stories.
You might ask, “Where do we have openings in our bodies” and “What functions certain openings have”. This is recommended to be more of an effective, gentle and enjoyable approach.
 
WHY OPENINGS IN OUR BODIES ARE SPECIAL
We have openings in our ears that help us to hear, and we have openings in our nose that help us to smell. Our mouth is a very special opening because it carries food into our bodies and we have to keep it very clean and healthy. All of our openings are special and we have to take good care of them. Openings help us breathe air into our lungs, eat and digest food, drink, go to the toilet, feed babies, give birth to babies, make babies, hear sounds, smell things that smell, taste and talk. Most of the time our openings will look after themselves. One thing we shouldn't do, is touch or play around with anyone's openings, because they are very special, and the smallest germs can spread inside us, and make us sick.
