The Great Big Hug is a children’s book about animal friends learning to set and respect boundaries. Follow Elephant and Meerkat as they become aware of power dynamics, recognize nonverbal cues, and understand that consent yesterday does not guarantee consent today. Consent education should start at a young age to promote empathy and safety. Without pronouns or preachiness, The Great Big Hug can help young kids navigate interpersonal conflicts now and as they grow.
The Great Big Hug (or El Gran Abrazo) is also available in Spanish – contact me if you’re interested.
