Details: Product description *Silver medal winner in the 'Self-Esteem' category of the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards 2015* Bodies do all sorts of amazing things, like move around, grow bigger and heal themselves. Bodies also come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and we need to take care of them so that they stay healthy and strong. If we listen to our bodies they tell us exactly what they need. The colorful illustrations in this unique picture book will encourage children to love their bodies from an early age. By learning about all the wonderful things bodies can do, and how each body is different and unique, children will be inspired to take good care of their bodies throughout their lives. Promoting respect for body diversity among children will also encourage kindness and help prevent bullying. This book is ideal for children aged 4 and upwards to read at home or school, either alone or with a parent, family member, teacher or other caring professional. Review 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. Author: 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.
