Unintentional Innuendo Found In Innocent Books

A while back we showed you 20 Unintentional Innuendo Book Titles to make you giggle and guffaw, and they proved to be a huge hit.

After much perusing of the web we have found a fresh collection of unintentional innuendo found in books… This time within the text itself. They are absolutely innocent children’s books, however grown ups do have the habit of discovering innuendo where there should be none.

Prepare to be slightly disgusted at both the innuendo, and at yourself for laughing.




Don’t be disgusting, they are just playing a game!

Ain’t that the truth!

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!

Errrr, what?

Oh Dick…

No. Don’t do that.

To be fair this is not innuendo. Just… Kids can be weird.

Just a little bit inappropriate?!

George was a voyeuristic young hippo

Oh sure… SLEEP.

I cannot condone what is happening to this pig

Harpo was arrested soon after.

We all know what they mean but… Really now.

I am too innocent for this type of lewdness!

What is it with all these voyeuristic animals?

Good grief! Stick its head back on!




Take a tour through the Dr Seuss sculpture gardens!

By | Arty, Children's Literature | No Comments
The Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden was opened in 2002. The idea for the garden was first imagined when the author visited Springfield in 1986, and after his death in 1991 his widow Audrey gave her blessing for his work to be immortalised in a memorial garden full of bronze statues. Seuss’s own stepdaughter, sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, made over 30 statues in bronze for her late step-father, and the statues are set among the grounds of Springfield Museum.

Surrounded by art and science museums and galleries, Seuss’s garden is a fun, exciting, but surprisingly peaceful, place to visit Lark captured his and his character’s spirits perfectly in bronze.

6 Books to Help Teach Children About Consent

By | Children's Literature, Literature | No Comments
Consent is important when it comes to our bodily autonomy, and our personal space. When we understand consent we have the power to say ‘no’ when we want to, we have control over what happens to us, and it is less likely people will take advantage.

It is important for our children to learn about their bodily autonomy from an early age so that they understand that, despite being the less-powerful person, they are allowed to say ‘no’ to an adult who is asking for physical contact. If we feel uncomfortable as adults with people touching and hugging us without our expressed consent, then imagine what it is like for children who don’t feel empowered enough to refuse a hug.

When children are given the tools to understand ownership of their own bodies, and their personal space, then they’re far less likely to be sexually abused in the future. This means starting with family- sure Grandma may want a kiss goodbye but what are you teaching your child when you pressure them into physical contact they don’t want, even if it is with someone they love?

Check out these amazing titles, written to empower children and give them the tools to say NO to unwanted physical contact.
