Our bodies can get us from here to there.
When we have big feelings, it’s our bodies that share. So bodies are useful, you’ll surely find,
but they’re also unique – one of a kind!
Our bodies! Our amazing, astounding, and all-around awesome bodies! Bodies come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and can do extraordinary things. Our bodies are uniquely our own, yet they connect us to the world around us in so many ways.
Through playful rhymes and colorful engaging artwork, all the things that make our bodies special—from the texture of our hair to the color of our eyes—are celebrated. This sweet and inclusive book encourages young readers to acknowledge and accept differences, and offers the perfect opportunity to open up conversations about body acceptance. Every body is different and all bodies are good.
