All Bodies Are Good Bodies

Little Hare. Jul. 2021. 24p. Tr $15.99. ISBN 9781760503932.
PreS–Bodies of all shapes and sizes are celebrated in this delightful Australian import geared towards toddlers and preschoolers. Body parts are reinforced with body-positive statements on every double-page spread featuring a white redheaded girl with flying pigtails who points to something. On the opposite page, a crew of children of various types—of different races, multi-hued, and differently abled—point or gesture to their own bodies. The rhyming text is simple and the message easy to understand. Deliberate inclusion makes this book easy to share in the classroom or for story hours.
VERDICT A solid introduction to body positivity and awareness for toddlers and preschoolers, this should make for lively sharing.
