#TuesdayReviewsDay ‘Everybody has a Body,’ by Jon Burgerman.

Having a positive body image plays a huge role in helping children develop their confidence and self-esteem. It’s fantastic to see a picture book for young children like ‘Everybody has a Body,’ which celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes.

With Jon Burgerman’s exuberant illustrations packed full of colour and humour, and a positive, inclusive message about being different and being yourself, readers are onto a sure-fire winner.

Although aimed at younger readers, my children (aged 7 & 11) have enjoyed looking through this book many times since it arrived, opening up some interesting dining table discussions about how people are all different and how that’s just fine. Something that’s so important to understand in a society where self-expression is encouraged in some quarters and vilified in others.

This vibrant book is the perfect introduction to the concepts of body image and ‘self’ for little just discovering who they are and where they fit in the world.
