It’s time to bare it all about bodies We all experience the world in a body but we don’t usually take the time to explore what it really means to have and live within one Just as every person has a uniue personality every person has a uniue body and every body tells its own st. 5 starsA compelling must read for kids young adults and adults Body Talk is the kind of no holds barred thoughtful compilation that I wish I had access to in school It's time to demystify our bodies and break down the barriers of ignorance and taboo surrounding our bodies and our physical differences Concept ★★★★★Writing ★★★★TeachingsKnowledge ★★★★★Enjoyment ★★★★ Why do we give our bodies such a hard time Why do signs of physical difference or ability mark some of us as Other At the end of the day why are we so hard on each other and on ourselves These are just a few of the uestions that Body Talk raises and they're great starting points I'd go so far as to the say that this anthology could be considered a primer for students in health class because honestly there are things in here that kids and us adults should be thinking critically about What is the correct way to refer to a disabled person Where did the phrase body positivity come from and is it the inclusive term we think it is Why is a woman's pain treated as insignificant in a doctor's office and often misdiagnosed Did you know that young men should be aware of a specific kind of cancer Some of these tales come from a place of education—the author is telling us about a subject in an an almost impartial manner and it works Some of these stories are bullet points some are from medical professionals Other tales come from places of pain and joy—authors who live on the other side of the social norm due to their physical form—which is outside of their control—and they're sharing their experiences with themselves on a personal level and with their surroundings These are the stories that I will remember the most because some of them cut deep and others highlighted some of my own biases fears and judgments We all have conceptions of physicality and what it means to have a normal body What many of us don't think about is how it feels to live on the other side of that line and how our normal ideas can be damaging ignorant or at times just confused This book is covers a LOT of topics and everyone could read these stories and get something different out of them We've got stories on disabilities yes but also on body size and shape gender female issues and male issues stigmas in different communities and windows into other people's experiences A valuable book and worth a read to all of us with bodies to care for and love Thank you to Algonuin Books for Young Readers for my copy in exchange for an honest reviewBlog | Instagram

From publisher via Goodreads giveawayThanks Algonuin this looks tasty and not just because Jensen shares the licorice geneExcellent Jensen did a great job of pulling together a range of voices issues attitudes and tone Aimed at raising awareness and increasing knowledge around a strong range of underrepresented issues with interstitial FAs ranging from using respectful preferred language to how tattoos work the book is successful as hell But it isn't just information There's a strong artistic sensibility in the selections and presentation where the impact is highlighted by the art I found Barstow's work particularly pleasingThere are themes that reappear lots of embarrassment and feeling completely outside the norm and some acceptance But there's a lot of intersectionality and advocacy and social activism What I most appreciated is that these aren't inspirational narratives for making already privileged readers feel better Disabilities are not noble or shameful they just are I also love the freuency of invisible disabilitiesBodies are gross and problematic and painful for many Here's some of the difficulties they present and no surprise it's often dealing with clueless people that's the hard partReally well done and necessary in every school and public library
