Reviews

In this era of extreme over-emphasis on body appearance and all the accompanying adverse effects, this delightful book is a "must" read for all children, regardless of age, gender or ethnicity. It is beautifully written, wonderfully illustrated, easy to read and delivers a very important message in an enchanting manner. It should be on all school curricula and all parents should ensure they read it too and discuss it with their children. The author and illustrator have done a truly amazing job. -- Professor Bryan Lask, Emeritus Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at St George's, University of London, Medical Director at Rhodes Farm, Care UK, and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children
Your Body is Awesome: Body Respect for Children stands alone among young children's books as a charming and adorably illustrated primer for children ages four and older. Body appreciation is the theme, and the messages are excellent... The book concludes with "A Message for Adults," which highlights that children and adolescents with body dissatisfaction are at increased risk for lower self-esteem and greater mental health problems... It is a must-have for libraries and early elementary health education and diversity programs. Children can read it alone or with an adult, in a home or school setting. -- The AED Forum (The Academy of Eating Disorders Newsletter)
