Book Review

A short overview of this book

Nonnie Talks About Consent by Mary Jo Podgurski is a book that teaches kids that consent is a vital part of everyday communication and healthy relationships.

This is one of the many books in the Nonnie Series, which is a collection of books that approach tough conversations with kindness and respect. She has also written:

I am a huge fan of these books as they are the sort of book that you can sit down and read together with your child, and complete the activities at the end of each chapter. Plus they lead into the topic very gently in a non-confronting way. These books are all based around the story of 2 children and a grandmother who helps them to understand tough topics.

This book looks at consent and explains that consent is not just about sexual consent, that it is about consent being an important part of our everyday relationships with people and in how we communicate with people.  Which means that consent is broken down into simple concepts that children can easily understand and incorporate into their lives.

There is also a story within this book of a sexual assault (unwanted touch), with this topic also being broached sensitively in regards to blame, guilt, and what to do.

I think that this is a fantastic book, and that it is an invaluable guide for starting conversations with your child about consent.
