Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
This is a guide to consent and bodily autonomy, packed with bright and energetic illustrations. Readers will learn about boundaries and how to set them; ways to respect themselves and others; what to do if someone makes them feel uncomfortable or unsafe; and much more. Along the way, they'll be encouraged to reflect on (and improve!) their own behavior and to practice consent in their daily lives. Whether you're looking for a consent primer to share with a friend or searching for a way to talk to your child about what it means to be in control of their own body and respect others', look no further! .

    *Starred Review* This illustrated adaptation of (and expansion on) Brian's viral video "Consent for Kids" guides readers through understanding consent and navigating various uncomfortable or confusing social situations involving their bodies. Stressing the concept of bodily autonomy, Brian lays out unambiguous rules for both giving and receiving consent, especially with regard to personal boundaries. She covers how to know when consent is or isn't given (directly or indirectly); how people abuse power to pressure others; how clothing communicates (it cannot give consent); having the right to change your mind; identifying unhealthy and healthy relationships; and how, when someone betrays your trust, it is not your fault. More modern situations involving technology (sharing photos, videos, etc.) are considered as well, and the lessons are related through lighthearted cartoons, making this difficult topic approachable, easily consumable, and even fun. Brian's artwork is laid out in bold typeface and clear-flowing panels and spot illustrations, starring a cast of simple, stick-limbed characters that is inclusive of race, gender, and ability. Throughout, the value of building strong friendships and support systems is emphasized, and after prompting readers to reflect upon their own experiences giving or receiving consent, Brian closes by offering resources to help those in need. Amusing, edifying, and empowering, this should be required reading for all consenting, corporeal human beings. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
