My body, my friend: an encyclopaedia to amaze you, make you laugh, think, and feel good.
Sometimes you might feel uncomfortable in your own skin, sometimes you might feel invincible. Katharina von der Gathen knows what interests and worries children about their own bodies. Her many years of experience are the basis for this new, unbiased and witty encyclopaedia, although it also takes into gentle consideration the feelings of ambivalence that often exist. Anke Kuhl’s charts, hidden pictures and cartoons are funny – sometimes even sad – in a relatable way. The result is a wonderfully encouraging book for both reading and reference, aimed at all children who want to feel at home in their own bodies.
