The Best Part of Me: Children Talk about Their Bodies in Pictures and Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An award-winning photographer asked several children "What is the best part of you?", and presents their answers in this sometimes funny, sometimes moving, deeply personal book that includes striking black-and-white photographs taken by the author. Ideal for parents and teacher to use to discuss body image, self-esteem, and diversity with children.

Synopsis:

An award-winning photographer captures children's thoughts about their bodies in striking b&w photos and disarmingly honest words.
