In simple, reassuring language, the author explains that a child’s body is his or her own; that it is all right for kids to decline a friendly hug or kiss, even from someone they love; and that you can still be friends even if you don’t want a hug now.
“A good, solid book on the subject and one of the few appropriate for this age group.”
“This book is positive and assertive without being frightening.”
School Library Journal
“This book should be a help for a parent or childcare worker, with its clear, matter-of-fact, non-threatening language and pleasant, comfortable pictures.”
