Meet Doug, an ordinary kid who doesn’t like hugs, in this fun and exuberant story which aims to spark discussions about bodily autonomy and consent—from author Carrie Finison and the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of The World Needs More Purple People, Daniel Wiseman.

Doug doesn’t like hugs. He thinks hugs are too squeezy, too squashy, too squooshy, too smooshy. He doesn’t like hello hugs or goodbye hugs, game-winning home run hugs or dropped ice cream cone hugs, and he definitely doesn’t like birthday hugs. He’d much rather give a high five—or a low five, a side five, a double five, or a spinny five. Yup, some people love hugs; other people don’t. So how can you tell if someone likes hugs or not? There’s only one way to find out: Ask! Because everybody gets to decide for themselves whether they want a hug or not.

AN IMPORTANT AND TIMELY SUBJECT: This book aims to spark discussions about bodily autonomy and consent in a kid-friendly, easy-to-understand way.

A USEFUL TOOL FOR EVERY KID: Don’t Hug Doug will especially appeal to families and classrooms with kids who have sensory issues. But it’s also important for every kid to talk about when they like hugs and when they don’t.

A FUN, IRRESISTIBLE READ ALOUD: Lively text, with plenty of humor, along with bright, bold illustrations make for a read aloud that kids and parents will enjoy again and again.

NOT JUST FOR CHILDREN: Sometimes adults also need to be reminded that not everyone likes hugs, and this book can serve as a gentle reminder to friends and family members that some kids aren’t always comfortable hugging.
