Description

With simple, fun, colourful illustrations and a delightful series of simple rhymes, Roz MacLean introduces the concept to young children that bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Designed to celebrate diversity and to make children feel comfortable with how they look, The Body Book is a visual delight for pre-schoolers and an excellent resource for early primary students learning to read.

Winner of the Gold Medal at the 2017 Benjamin Franklin Awards.

Contributor Notes

Roz MacLean lives in beautiful Vancouver, BC where she balances her writing and illustration practice with supporting students with diverse needs at school. Roz is passionate about mental health, education, body positivity, self-compassion and inclusion of people with diverse abilities. These values are a constant theme in her creative work, embodied most vibrantly in her newest release, "The Body Book." As an educator, she believes that positive cultural change begins on an individual and emotional level with early education. When children learn to relate to themselves and their bodies with self-acceptance, love and care they will be better able to maintain positive mental and physical health as they navigate our society's problematic media landscape. Her first book as author/illustrator, Violet's Cloudy Day, earned an honorable mention for the Montaigne Medal at the 2015 Eric Hoffer Awards, and her second book, The Body Book, won the Gold Medal at the 2017 Benjamin Franklin Awards.

Editorial Review

"With her work, MacLean has shown just how important it is for books like this to showcase the diversity of bodies, especially non-idealized bodies, when it comes to size and disability for children. With rhyming text and simple illustrations, the concepts are both fun and easy to understand, while still driving home a very clear, educational and positive message." - The National Post. - -
