(Update: Currently sold out; on backorder) Have you talked about body safety with your child? This book explains that a child's body is his or her own; that it is all right for them to decline a friendly hug or kiss, even from someone they love; and that they can still be friends even if they don't want a hug now. . . This book has been most helpful in helping my toddler understand the limits of how she should be touched. She is now aware of what private parts are, and how these parts must never be touched by anyone except by us or the doctor when she needs help. . . It's never too early to talk to your child about important issues like this, and this is a great book to begin with.

Simple book to introduce concept of body autonomy. My toddler is drawn to the realistic illustrations. It’s simple and even so my toddler is still learning to grasp this concept. As she is older I will supplement with more in depth books but for now it’s good.
We really liked how the book introduces body safety to the kids, and the kids really enjoyed the colourful illustrations and easy-to-understand sentences. Recommended!
This book is clear and simple to understand for kids around 3-5yo about body boundaries. I love that they talk about how it is ok to say no to the touch of even people we love - often this is confusing for kids because they are made to think that "if you love me, why won't you hug me?" This books teaches them that we mostly enjoy touch by our loves ones, but it's ok to say no when you don't feel up for it. I also like that it includes the part about when it is appropriate for others to touch their private parts (when bathing them, when doctors need to check them, but only in the presence of a trusted caregiver). This book covered all the scenarios in a way that is easy to understand for little kids. Highly recommend it!
I like how the book simplifies the topic so that young children can understand how they can apply body boundaries practically in real life. It also helps me as a parent better understand the topic as well, and therefore can support my child in real life scenarios where relevant.
I like the content of the story that helps young children understand that the body is his/hers and that they need not oblige to being physically close to others if he/she does not feel like it. A great book for 4-year-olds who are learning about body ownership. It also includes a couple of pages about reminding the child to show affection to his/her loved ones. Would be even better if the book were bilingual though.
If this book would be bilingual, it'd be perfect!! Will be on the lookout for more awesome bilingual books for sure! This is such an important topic to talk with our young kids. Thanks for sharing snippets of the book, appreciate you SK!
