Ask First, Monkey!: A Playful Introduction to Consent and Boundaries
Meet Monkey. Tickletastic Monkey. He's the best tickler in the world, ever; even his mum says so. And there's nothing he loves more than tickling ALL his friends at playtime!
But what happens if some of his friends don't want to be tickled?
This picture book shows children aged 3-6 what consent is and why it's so important. With parent and teacher guidance included, it is an ideal resource to use in the classroom to help young children understand issues of consent and personal boundaries, and to teach them to consider the feelings of others.
The book can be used in a variety of contexts - as an entertaining story, or as a tool with a free, downloadable lesson plan - and its fun pictures and humour are guaranteed to keep the attention of young children across multiple readings.
An ideal tool to encourage early understanding of consent, Ask First, Monkey! helps to empower children to respect themselves and others, and teach them that a reason for 'no' is never needed - it just needs to be respected.
