This gentle picture book reinforces the importance of touch and helps children understand how to ask for the kinds of touches they want: a hug, a kiss or a lap to sit on. In presenting individuals of different ages, ethnic groups, and physical abilities, it also teaches children to respect other people’s bodies and boundaries, too.
