Where Hands Go, by Krystaelynne Sanders Diggs and Ananta Mohanta

An Introduction to Safe and Unsafe Touch

Where Hands Go is a lovely, gentle introduction to teaching very young children about consent. I don’t think it’s ever too soon to teach kids about bodily autonomy, about what kind of touch is acceptable and what isn’t. It can be a difficult subject for parents to bring up and I think this book is the perfect tool to approach that conversation. It’s a very short book, told in the style of a poem that’s easy to read and understand and the illustrations are so beautiful. I keep seeing this book and I’m glad I read it, I’ll be recommending it to friends with young children.
