“Welcome to Consent” by Yumi Stynes and Dr. Melissa Kang

Welcome to Consent” by Yumi Stynes and Dr. Melissa Kang is a chapter book written for older kids (approximately 10 years old and up) is a must-have for every home library.

Understanding consent is important for people with all kinds of bodies, in all kinds of circumstances — from getting a haircut or letting the doctor check your blood pressure, to hugging a friend, picking up a child, or kissing someone.

Welcome to Consent” not only helps teach children to create boundaries by learning to say “yes” and “no” — it provides different scenarios and what to do in tricky situations.

After all, consent isn’t always communicated with a clear “Yes, you can!” or “No, you can’t!” “Welcome to Consent” breaks down myriad situations involving consent and bodily autonomy, including navigating new or changing feelings, recognizing power imbalances, staying safe in online spaces, and keeping relationships mutually comfortable.

Through relatable illustrations by Jenny Latham, clear explanations, and real-life examples, readers will learn how to actively listen and observe, set boundaries, and speak up for themselves and others. Experts Yumi Stynes and Dr. Melissa Kang approach this crucial topic with passion, awareness, and empathy.
