Don't Hug Doug: (He Doesn't Like It)

Finison, C.
Doug is a typical young boy who likes his rock collection, drawing, and music and is messy with his chalk and socks but don’t hug Doug. Doug likes people but does not like “squeezy, squashy, and smooshy” hugs. There are people Doug likes to hug, such as his mom, but he encourages people to seek consent before hugging—just ASK. Doug himself prefers a high five. This engaging picture book, with its colourful illustrations, is suitable as a read-aloud to encourage discussion of personal boundaries and how to seek consent, and the importance of respect and communication
