No Means No!

No Means No!

Teaching children about personal boundaries, respect and consent; empowering kids by respecting their choices and their right to say, 'No!'

Meet an empowered little girl who knows all about body boundaries, consent and respect, and her right to say ‘No!’ when it comes to her personal space.

‘No Means No!’ endeavours to teach young children that they have a body boundary and people, young and old, need to respect this boundary and ask for consent before entering it. Using engaging illustrations which focus on familiar scenarios such as greetings, tickling games and bath time, children will come to understand that they have a voice and every right to speak up when they feel unhappy, unsafe or uncomfortable. A strong, confident voice as a young child converts to a strong, confident pre-teen, teenager and adult.

‘No Means No!’ can be used as a springboard for ongoing discussions around body autonomy and consent.

Also included a comprehensive Note to Reader and in-depth Discussion Questions for parents, caregivers and educators to further enhance the learning, and to initiate important conversations around body boundaries, consent and respect.

Suitable for children 3-6 Years and 7-11 Years

Testimonials

"I loved this book. I am a Safeguarding Consultant and use it in my child protection training at work. This book promotes the voice of the child. A decent price and great pictures and storyline. A user-friendly book and not too scary but puts a clear message across for children. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed the book and it has given her more confidence in challenging people around her that make her feel uncomfortable."

"Well written and immediately engaging. My 4 year old B/G twins were immediately absorbed and we read it over and over several nights in a row. Great way to communicate this important message."

"Great POSITIVE book on personal boundaries! This book does a great job of empowering kids with personal boundaries. Giving alternatives to physical touching with others and allowing kids to make their own choices when it comes to their bodies. I love the way the book takes a tough subject matter and uses it to instil confidence. Great book!"
Emily Hakalaon

"We got this book for our 2 year old son and he loves it! He really enjoys the book and "no means no!" has become one of his favorite phrases. He understands to use the phrase when he doesn't want someone touching him. Highly recommend the book for parents/caregivers wanting to teach bodily integrity to their children."
Amazon Purchaser

"This is a great book & my 3 year old likes it too! It's simple but gets the point across well and leaves room for a lot of conversation. It highlights real situations that all kids will find themselves in at some point."
