Bodies Are Cool - Cover
Bodies Are Cool
Tyler Feder, Dial Books for Young Reader 2021
The book we've been waiting for! A celebration of every type of body that exists - large, small, round, thin, hairy, scarred, old, young. Every visible disability is shown - integrated on to each page rather than segregated onto a special page - taking part in each page's activity (people on a bus, ballet class, painting a mural, at a picnic, at the movies, at a farmers market...etc. etc.). Every page filled with energy and delight. Bodies are truly cool!! Also available in Spanish "Los Cuerpos Son Geniales".
