Let’s talk body boundaries, consent & respect…

I really, really liked this book. It talks about consent and respect. It teaches kids direct, honest and straight forward communication even with the adults in their lives. It teaches them how to say ‘No’ when they need to, and also how to respect a ‘No’ from others when they hear it. It gives them alternate options to consider when they don’t want to give their consent to something but also don’t want to deny it fully. Like, for example, giving a hi five instead of a hug. It teaches them about body boundaries and how to respect their body boundaries as well as those of others. More importantly, it teaches them that they are the bosses of their bodies and what they say goes. The illustrations show a lot of diversity and are quite engaging. I will be reading this to my nearly 5 year olds many times for sure.
