Review

Praise for Don't Hug Doug:

A Chicago Public Library Best Book of the Year
An ALA Notable Children’s Book
A Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year

“A simple but effective lesson for children learning their own personal boundaries.” —TODAY

Don’t Hug Doug can make kids feel better about their own boundaries, and challenge them to understand the comfort of others. But really, it gives grown-ups something to consider, too.” —Boston Globe

“It’s great to see . . . boundaries [of consent and personal autonomy] talked about, and
Don’t Hug Doug does it in a way that’s both reinforcing and fun to read.” —The A.V. Club

* “A cheerful approach to basic consent . . . An excellent update on the golden rule: treat people how they want to be treated.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “A gently humorous picture book that kindly, effectively highlights the importance of asking others before initiating physical contact.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Simple and effective in showing young viewers how to establish bodily autonomy . . . A great starting point for a conversation about boundaries and how to set them.” —
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A fun way to deliver the truth of different strokes for different folks.” —Booklist
