A empowering, empathetic cartoon-packed kids’ guide to being the ruler of your own body, trusting instincts and self-reflection
January 2020 Book of the Month
“Your body belongs to you, and you get to set your own rules.” At once inspiring, informative and entertaining, this perfectly-pitched consent primer covers the concept of consent, setting boundaries, having control over your personal space and body, and being self-aware.
Ideal for use in the classroom as a fun and enlightening teaching aid, the appealingly bold cartoons present big issues in an admirably relatable manner. Alongside the clear explanation of what consent is and how to set boundaries, this empathy-nurturing book also shares valuable insights into how to be a supportive friend, making it a uniquely useful navigational tool.
From the co-creator of the viral 'Tea Consent' video, this is the perfect introduction to consent for kids and families everywhere. Your body belongs to you and you get to set your own rules, so that you may have boundaries for different people and sometimes they might change. Like when you hi-five your friends and kiss your kitten, but not the other way round!
But consent doesn't need to be confusing. From setting boundaries, to reflecting on your own behaviour and learning how to be an awesome bystander, this book will have you feeling confident, respected, and 100% in charge of yourself and your body.
Brought to life with funny and informative illustrations, this is the smart, playful and empowering book on consent that everyone has been waiting for.
