Teaching children respect for other’s personal space: A storybook
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
Published in 2007 and written by Julia Cook and illustrated by Carrie Hartman, Personal Space Camp teaches young children about respecting other’s personal space. The storybook follows a young boy, Louis, who often invades the personal space of his classmates and friends. Although Louis does not mean to, he often hurts or rudely interrupts others with his lack of respect for other’s personal space. After one particularly bad personal space violation, Louis gets sent to personal space camp with Principal Goodkid, who teaches him how to respect the personal space of others. The book contains several activities that can be utilized in the classroom to teach students the importance of respecting other’s personal space. (e.g., using hula-hoops to demonstrate the minimum acceptable amount of personal space between students).
