Too fat, too thin. Muffin top, flat bum, thunder thighs, spaghetti arms. From an early age, kids learn they are judged for how they look. Both boys and girls are bombarded with messages of what they should look like and are shamed for not measuring up. When kids encounter conflict based on stereotypes of body image, they need the understanding and the tools to deal with the situation and not let it damage their self-esteem. This book provides information, relatable situations and opportunities for kids to explore cultural standards, their own assumptions and those of others.

This accessible illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and real-life situations to help kids think critically about body image, how it influences how others see them and how they see themselves. Considered from the viewpoints of the Internalizer, who suffers from body-image issues, the Influencer, who perpetuates negative stereotypes and standards of body image and the Witness, with conflicts around body image, this issue is identified, examined and put into a context kids can use to navigate issues of shaming and self-esteem.

TIERRA HOHN has a background in public health, public policy and mental health. She uses her personal experience with eating disorders to educate, advocate and support others who deal with body image issues. While in high school, Tierra founded Untouched Beauty, an organization that has allowed her to organize and facilitate workshops around body image and mental health. Tierra lives and works in Toronto.

MARNE GRAHLMAN is a freelance illustrator and graduate of OCAD University. Her illustrations are influenced by surrealism with a folk aesthetic. She emphasizes natural watercolour textures to enliven her paintings with a handmade quality. Hailing from a small woodsy-town, she currently lives in Toronto, Canada.
