Your Body Is Awesome, Second Edition
Your Body Is Awesome (2nd Edition)
Body Respect for Children
by Sigrun Danielsdottir, illustrated by Bjork Bjarkadottir
The Tool Shed offers a variety of books for parents and caregivers who are looking for materials to help them talk to young people about sex, sexuality, and human diversity in a positive, age-appropriate, and healthy manner. Feel free to contact us or to stop by the store to see our selection.
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. The new edition also has changes made to the illustrations and text to widen the scope of diversity presented in the book (to include gender fluidity and physical disabilities).
This updated 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.
