Don't Hug the Quokka!
That quokka may be cute, but you can't hug it unless it says it's OK!
That quokka may be cute, but does it want a hug? The quokka says “No!” In Don't Hug That Quokka!, young readers get a lighthearted and friendly introduction to the concept of consent, learning that even the most adorable creatures might not want a hug—unless they say so!
Consent is a really important topic for parents to introduce with young children, but it can be tricky to do so in a way that’s clear without being frightening. This book is funny and cute, but has a clear message that you have to ask before touching someone else—it’s a good place to start for young kids.
