To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My daughter loves this book! We bought it as a way to talk to our kids about respecting others personal space, but my daughter loves it because it's such a fun story. We read it several times a day for a solid week.
I’m a daycare teacher and this book came highly recommended by my professor. It speaks upon personal boundaries, and what Doug (main character) is accepting of. Great book for establishing / talking about children’s personal preferences.
This was a lovely introduction for my almost 3 year old to the idea that you can't just hug/touch people without asking permission. It's lighthearted, has bright pictures, and suggests alternatives to hugging. Highly recommend it.
My children are 14 and 5. My 5 year old always wants hugs, but my 14 year old does not like being touched. We've tried to explain to our 5 year old that not everyone likes hugs and she has to have consent before giving someone a hug. I read the book to both of my children at the same time and it's like something clicked in my 5 year old's head. She realized that her sister does not like hugs, and it is not okay to force them on her. It opened up a discussion between my children about finding a compromise that both girls were happy with. They decided that they would give each other a hand heart or fist bump instead of hugs and they are both happy with that decision. The book was easy to read, entertaining, and opened a dialog that needed to be addressed in our family.
