Miles is the Boss of His Body
by Samantha Kurtzman

Target Audience: Pre-K through 3rd grade

Guest Speaker: Chris Ballentine from Willow Valley

Summary: On his 6th birthday, Mile’s excitement is dimmed when he finds himself being repeatedly pinched, noogied, hugged too tight, picked up, and tickled by his well-intentioned family- and decides he’s had enough! Struggling to find words to express his frustration, Miles finally decrees that he is the ‘boss of his body’ and hopes his family will understand. Much to his surprise, Mile’s whole family shows him full support and respect for voicing his personal boundaries. In a colorful, comic- book style, this important tale will have young kids laughing and learning alongside Miles when they absorb a potentially lifesaving concept that can benefit them for years to come.
