This cheerful love-your-body picture book for preschoolers is an exuberant read-aloud with bright and friendly illustrations to pore over.
From the acclaimed creator of Dancing at the Pity Party and Roaring Softly, this picture book is a pure celebration of all the different human bodies that exist in the world. Highlighting the various skin tones, body shapes, and hair types is just the beginning in this truly inclusive book. With its joyful illustrations and encouraging refrain, it will instill body acceptance and confidence in the youngest of readers. "My body, your body, every different kind of body! All of them are good bodies! BODIES ARE COOL!"
[T]his unabashed promotion of body positivity packs a punch and reminds readers to respect and love every body--including their own. This is a timely message with universal applications. -- Booklist
This inclusive book shows and celebrates all types of bodies in the park, in the pool, at a party--everywhere. That's exactly where all our bodies are . . . . It's truly transformative not only to be seen by others but to see yourself. To see yourself just as you are. To see yourself included. To see your body as good, as cool . . . a great resource to start conversations about fatphobia and anti-fat bias and to help a kid struggling with their self-image. --Lisa Fipps, author of Starfish
