"What Do I Do With My Hugs?" is an interactive personal space book, written by Founder of 'give space, ' Carol Winner, and illustrated by an award-winning illustrator, Lorna Murphy. Summary: When Lily does not get her warm hug from her Mimi, she is sad and confused. Mimi reveals the reason why, and they have fun learning to show their love in new ways. A heartfelt story about communicating personal space needs for family members to heal...or just to be. It is appropriate for homes, schools, libraries, gift shops, cancer centers, etc., any organization that can reach families to support the need to start the conversation with children about giving space. It promotes kindness, empathy, and compassion. How can we help children understand that if we set boundaries, such as not getting too close to others, asking to hug, being careful about how close they sit to the other guy - that it is all for their good and the good of others? Teaching children about personal space boundaries is helping them navigate their own space in relation to others - essential for healthy relationships and living. Space invasion is unwelcomed and reflects negatively on the potential or existing relationship, as there is either a real or perceived disrespect for the breathing room needed to be comfortable. Kids love books! Being able to share a story, such as this, whether they are reading it or being read to, starts that discussion about personal space boundaries. Children can quickly understand the meaning of the word "healing." As the Author, Carol's 3-year-old granddaughter said while reading, "Mimi has a blister!" Children too can identify when someone might be upset with them, and it can be fearful. Lily doesn't understand why her Mimi might be upset with her, when in the end, Mimi is just struggling herself with how to communicate her need for space. Their love prevails and they work through how to show their love in alternative ways. It is a beautiful demonstration of their love and respect for each other. "What Do I Do With My Hugs?" is an exceptional story, written, edited, illustrated, and designed by women committed to enhancing our children's lives through education and play. It is designed to help them experience the best of life, a healthy and happy life, with empathy and compassion for those with whom they share space.
