Do you have questions about your body? Do you sometimes compare yours to other people’s? Are you not sure where to turn for answers and support?
All super common experiences (for all of us), but here is a book to help. Any Body is an honest book exploring bodies, body parts and identity. It takes a detailed look at how our bodies change over time and the things we can expect to experience as we hit our teen years and beyond.
From tips to boost self-confidence to tips on how to be a little bit daring, this book has your back.
Exploring bodies from the outside, body difficulties, bodies from the inside, changing bodies and more, this is an important book for youngsters. How young is probably a question for individual families, but my plan is to read this one with my pre-teens so we can talk through the issues and have a little giggle together.
