Body Talk: 37 Voices Explore Our Radical Anatomy

We rated this book:


Bodies. Everyone is different and unique. We’re stuck with them. Whether we like it or not. Body Talk explores what it really means to have a body and what society does to shape them.

In this multi-narrative chapter book, thirty-seven voices share their stories and experiences. Each chapter is from a different perspective making this book suitable for all readers no matter their body time, gender identity, or who/how they chose to love.

All ages need to be informed about their bodies, but this book focuses on mainly teenage to young adult perspectives. Parents could pick out key information to share with younger children, but this book was probably directed at teenagers.

Although each body and everyone’s experience with one is different, readers will most likely relate to at least a few viewpoints from the book. I can see this book in teenage and up reading lists and maybe even used in science or health classes.
