About What If?
With diverse and colourful characters, beautiful illustrations and an engaging rhyming format, take a walk through different scenarios related to important topics of consent and body boundaries with one powerful question: “What if?”
Exploring key skills such as personal space, emotions and safe and unsafe touches, this book is suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years and aims to empower them to protect and take charge of their own bodies.
Also included is a comprehensive discussion guide for parents, educators and caregivers to help them navigate tough conversations.
