Radical self love needs to start earlier! Teach girls as young as 8 to love their bodies!
A recent study showed that girls as young as five years old are experiencing the negative impacts of body shame. This book is targeted at girls aged 8+, as well as parents, teachers, and health professionals with the aim of preventing negative body image and related issues in girls and women by teaching them to see their bodies as incredible instruments rather than as objects. It is the first children’s book that depicts “imperfections” in its illustrations – showing stretch marks and cellulite- erasing the shame associated with them.
