Staff Reviews

What a fantastic book to teach your children a lesson about consent! It is told in a very simple manner with rhyme and repetition and adorable illustrations – just love those lovebirds!  A must have book to have on your shelf!

— Kathy


A lovebird who doesn't like kisses?

Rissy's friends and family wonder if she's sick, confused, or rude. But kisses make Rissy uncomfortable. Can one little lovebird show everyone that there's no one right way to show you care?

Rissy No Kissies carries the message that your body and your heart are yours, and you choose how to share. A note at the end provides further information for kids, parents, and educators about body autonomy, consent, and different ways to show affection.

This is an artistic gem for consent discussions, sensory-processing contexts, and anyone who champions children's agency and bodily autonomy. Radiant.--starred, Kirkus Reviews
