STARRED REVIEW School Library Journal - Some Bodies

“Young and old, big and small, every body is honored in this book…An excellent choice as a read-aloud in an elementary setting or as an independent choice for children ready to tackle simple language on their own or with a family member.”

Kirkus Reviews - Some Bodies

“This book definitely practices what it preaches. O’Callaghan’s illustrations represent body diversity and include people of various skin tones, shapes, sizes, and abilities. With warm colors and varied settings, the art is inviting and engaging. Kennen’s text offers no judgment, just simple descriptions with the mantra that “all bodies are good. An important, affirming conversation starter about respecting—and celebrating—diverse bodies.”
