Description

This uniquely illustrated board book follows a young bunny through their day while they make space for themselves and others, delivering a straightforward but impactful message about boundaries and consent.

Inspired by the idea of teaching very young children how to maintain social distance, I Make Space evolved into a way of demonstrating the concept of personal space and how to recognize their own needs and the needs of others—because everyone needs space sometimes, even the people that love us the most. Written by award-winning author Sara Cassidy and illustrated by the talented Jimmy Tigani, this is a thoughtful book that you are going to want to make space on your baby's bookshelf for.

Editorial Review

“A potentially useful springboard for discussing an abstract concept. Recommended.”
