A great book for kids about the power of saying no. I love that the characters were superheroes to illustrate that saying no is powerful. I didn't love the art with the very computer generated style. But overall, a good book for kids to read.

I can't commend this book enough.
The message is SO IMPORTANT and is something I've been teaching my 2.5 year old recently.
It's never too early to teach your kids.
The illustrations were bright and colourful!
I love a children's book that rhymes,
It was fun but the message was clear

I'll be buying this book for sure'

This is an extremely important book to read & discuss with children. Using it as a discussion springboard can help parents & educators keep our children safe as they learn and grow. I liked the various scenarios pictured in the book and felt they were well depicted and could be used in multiple ways to help children ascertain the important ways they need to be aware of their surroundings and protect themselves. I would like to have seen the word ‘no’ on the hand as well as ‘stop’ however. I also appreciated all the parental & educator advise given at the beginning and end of the child’s portion of the story! This is a book that belongs in every home & schoolroom!

I thought the messaging and content for caregivers was great. It's an important message, and it seems accessible. I didn't love the artwork, but would still recommend based on the message.

This children's book contains adorable illustrations which are likely to appeal to young kids. That is important, because the topic it discusses can be a difficult one to raise with a young child.

But the importance of teaching kids about "good touch" vs "bad touch" cannot really be overstated. And it is vital that children understand that they have a degree of agency over their bodily integrity.

The rhyming approach taken by the author is a good idea, and again, is likely to appeal to young children. But the rhymes could have been improved in some instances.

Also, I think it would have been useful to have a more nuanced approach to the use of the word no, rather than glorifying it entirely - since, as any parent can confirm, no is a word parents hear all too often e.g. when it comes to vegetable consumption!

But I did love the illustrations, and overall, this is a good attempt to address a difficult topic.

This is an amazing low-level book on the power of saying no. This is an easy to understand book about exerting control over your body and your feelings even at a young age. I think that every library, elementary school, and social worker/social services office should have a copy of this book.

This is such an important topic and is crucial to teach to even very young children. The power of no is quite powerful and every child needs to learn that no means no when it comes to unwanted touching, and to feel safe and respected. Highly recommended.
