This book is just beautiful!... It's bright and colourful and is filled with simple but meaningful dialogue about the many different, wonderful things that our bodies can do - regardless of what we look like... A great teaching resource, but also an enjoyable read. I don't hesitate to recommend this book both as a parent and as an educator. * In Our Hands blog * 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 The author Sigrun Danielsdottir, an Icelandic psychologist, specialising in eating disorders and body image delivers a simple but effective message in this beautifully illustrated picture book which would be suitable for children aged three upwards... It encourages the reader to listen to, respect and take care of their own individual unique body. It notes that bodies may look different and come in different shapes, shades and sizes but furthermore it inspires the reader to respect this diversity... At the end of the book there is a section titled - 'A Message for Adults' which outlines the importance of children's positive self-body image and its influence on health and emotional well - being. This a fun picture book with delightful illustrations which tackles many important issues in a light hearted yet powerful way. It is a book that all children could be introduced to at an early age and one that they can pick up and read at home or at school. * Play Therapy * This terrific general picture book about people's bodies emphasises having respect, not only for your own body, but for other people's too...the book is a riot of colour and shape and fun, with integrated text at some points, along with lots of different bodies doing lots of different things.
