Book Overview

Teaching young children about body boundaries, both theirs and others, is crucial to a child's growing sense of self, their confidence and how they should expect to be treated by others. A child growing up knowing they have a right to their own personal space, gives that child ownership and choices as to what happens to them and to their body. It is equally important a child understands, from a very young age, they need to respect another person's body boundary and ask for their consent when entering their personal space. This book explores these concepts with children in a child-friendly and easily-understood manner, providing familiar scenarios for children to engage with and discuss. It is important that the reader and the child take the time required to unpack each scenario and explore what they mean both to the character in the book, who may not be respecting someone's body boundary, and to the character who is being disrespected. It is through these vital discussions that children will learn the meaning of body boundaries, consent and respect. Learning these key social skills through such stories as 'Let's Talk About Body Boundaries, Consent and Respect' and role-modelling by significant adults can, importantly, carry forward into a child's teenage years and adult life.

My 5 year old boy and 3 year old girl love this book and it's resonated with them. They want to discuss healthy boundaries and relationships when they read it. I'm so happy I bought it.

   A good starting place....
The book is for young children. I think it's good for 7 andunder. A good jumping off point for body safety and paying attention to other's body language, but in some ways too vague and not solid enough for true safety against people that are dishonest.

   Buy it! My kindergartener loves it.
The book is for sale. It is so good. I read it to both of my children. My 5.5 year old child likes her boundaries and wants them respected. She laid out how to advocate for herself and how boundaries are normal. She explained respect and consent in a way that she could understand and apply. We like this book.

   Tough topic handled in a great way
My child loves this book. She can understand how it tackles difficult topics. The content talks about not having to hold hands if you don't want to. I agree with that in most circumstances, but my daughter resists hand holding in dangerous areas in a way that she didn't before I read this book and another that said the same thing. The author should not talk about hand holding.

   Excellent book for kids
My daughter is 4 years old. It has helped her prepare for school and learn about respecting bodies and rights, as well as expecting others to respect her own. I like it. As a social worker, I use it to share these ideas with my clients and teach them about body boundaries and respect. Everyone with kids should get these books and read them to their children. The principles in these books could make the whole read better.

   an essential message for children
I use this book in small groups with young children and it is easy to understand. Children can relate to situations such as not wanting to hug someone or being shoved while waiting in line. There is a safety network. When someone doesn't respect your body boundary, 3 trusted adults should go. The book lays the groundwork to protect your child from sexual violence, without being involved in a sexual nature. It was what I was looking for.
