Bodies Are Cool

Bodies Are Cool

A picture book celebration of all kinds of bodies


This body positive picture book is a vibrant, joyful, and judgement-free celebration of every body shape and size.

My body, your body,
every different kind of body!
All of them are good bodies!

This heart-warming, inclusive book, filled with detailed and friendly illustration is a celebration of every kind of body that exists in the world. Through an empowering, rhythmic text that is perfect for reading aloud, little ones can explore various skin tones, body shapes, hair types, and more, in an accessible way that instills body positivity and confidence.

The picture book debut from talented author/illustrator Tyler Feder, whose inclusive artwork - full of warmth and humour - has earned her a large social media following through her brand, Roaring Softly.


  • A bustling celebration of body positivity that lovingly features bodies, skin, and hair of all kinds . . . Feder chooses clear and unapologetic language to describe body characteristics, challenging the negative connotations that are often attached to those bodies . . . Depicting societally marginalized human bodies in all their joyful, normal glory, this book is cool.
