About the Author

Lydia Bowers is a speaker, consultant, and trainer who happily exists in the Venn diagram overlap between early childhood and sex education. After spending almost two decades working directly with children as a classroom teacher and a parent, she is passionate about reframing sexuality conversations. Lydia now teaches families and educators how to talk to children about subjects like gender, reproduction, and abuse. When she's not traveling around the country for conferences and speaking engagements, she lives in Cincinnati with her husband and two children and adds to her growing collection of children's book character tattoos as often as she can. Follow her on TikTok @lydiatalksconsent and Instagram @lydiambowers.

Isabel Muñoz's dream was to paint for a living, and now she's proud to be the illustrator of several children's books. She works from a tiny and colorful studio in the north of Spain. You can follow her work at isabelmg.com.


"As a mother and a pediatrician, I am deeply grateful for this book. Lydia Bowers is an expert in demystifying the human body, personal boundaries, and consent for all ages. This book navigates the space of body positivity, body parts, bodily autonomy, and consent with expert grace, clarity, nuance, and honesty. It is not enough to hope our kids stay safe; these concepts taught at a young age are protective and preventative. It is my hope that this book would be in every space where children live and learn."--Heather M. Relyea Ashley, MD, FACP, Pediatrics & Internal Medicine, Birmingham, Alabama
