This is a greatly needed book in our world right now. I hear from children, youth, parents, physicians, therapists and educators every week that they have a need for this type of comprehensive, clear, respectful and inclusive information. Rachel has done an incredible job of making the content relevant and relatable. We will all benefit from having this book to help young people know their bodies and feel good about their bodies, and for once - truly every body's body! Thank you Rachel.
