About this book

Through her trademark quirky monster characters, author Elise Gravel illustrates ways that bodies can be different. They have different shapes, different sizes, different colours, different hair, and can do different things. These differences make everybody’s bodies special, but all bodies should be respected. Your body is YOURS, so give it a hug . . . but only if you want to.

This important message of body positivity will both empower and entertain. The best body is the one that belongs to you!


* “It’s My Body! is an exuberant, kid-friendly nonfiction picture-book primer on body positivity . . . Combining laughs with thoughtful lessons, this robust resource also offers tips on how to treat your body with kindness and keep it ‘HEALTHY AND HAPPY’ . . . With monster-sized aplomb and panache, Gravel delivers a message that can’t be heard enough: every body is worthy of love and respect.” — Quill & Quire, starred review
