Your Body Belongs to You by Cornelia Spelman – Illustrated by Teri Weidner

5 stars and highly recommended for children aged 2 years and up

A gentle and empowering read about touch.

I found this book on a parenting website recommending this to children from ages 2 years and up. I really enjoyed how this book illustrated lots of love and affection while slightly making it clear that it’s always OK to say “NO” when you do not feel comfortable with being touch – even if it’s just saying no to an unwanted hug.

Written positively and structured in a simple yet reassuring way with wonderful illustrations, I found it caught the eye of my toddler and I highly recommend this to all parents to read to their children.
