We love the book!
This book does a really good job at looking at body image and talking about liking yourself without remaining cliche. I liked that they brought up all of the people telling you that you need to look a certain way or change something are trying to sell you something. This idea really resonated with my 8 year old daughter and myself. It lead to great conversations after reading it.
Without a doubt I knew when purchasing this book that it should be great. It exceeded my expectation. I am smiling thinking about all the kiddos it will impact in a positive way! This is my 2nd book that I have purchased with this collection, I can't wait to collet more!
A Kids Book About Body Image is a book for young and old. It might be the very best book about Body Image that I have ever read. Rebecca Alexander is a beautiful writer and with her honesty, wisdom, and knowledge, in this precious book, she invites us to be ourselves, no matter our size or shape. She reminds us we are not alone. Even when the world outside is cruel and we feel rejected, we are not alone. Each page is full of real life experience and has an important and loving message about self compassion and loving our own bodies just the way they are. I wish I had had this book as a young preteen and teenager. I would have read it every day. I am a 48 year old woman who had eating disorders all my young life and still struggles to love my own body. Rebecca speaks to the reader through her words on the page as if she is right there with you, saying, let’s read this together. I love this book with all my heart. Thank you Rebecca for knowing the exact right words to describe all of the emotions and feelings that surround body image.-
I don't know what I expected from the book going into this, but what I took away from it personally was a better understanding of body image. I'm 51 yrs old, and while it's written for kids, it's message is sophisticated and has an impact. I'm grateful this exists. The book is short, but builds interest, empathy and offers a practical message that anyone of any age can't help but absorb. Kudos to Rebecca Alexander.
