Virtual Book Launch: Yes! No! A First Conversation About Consent
Brooklyn Public Library — Virtual
Join co-authors Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli, along with illustrator Isabel Roxas in this VIRTUAL celebration of the launch of their new book Yes! No! A First Conversation About Consent, the third book in the First Conversations board book series for children ages 2-6 from RISE X Penguin Workshop. Based on the research that gender, race, consent, and bodies should be discussed with toddlers on up, this read-aloud board book series offers adults the opportunity to begin important conversations with young children in an informed, safe, and supported way. Stunning art accompanies the simple and interactive text, and the back matter offers additional resources and ideas for extending this discussion. A book discussion with BPL Outreach Librarian Sheneatha Frison will be followed by a read-aloud by the authors. Then a Q & A with the authors and illustrator will allow participants to get firsthand tips on how to engage young children in conversations about consent using this book and other recommended resources. Follow the series on Instagram @First_Conversations. Please register for this free Zoom event. Registered audience members will receive a Zoom link prior to the event. A recording of the event with captions will be emailed to registered participants.
