Body Pro by Erin Falligant

Book Review:  A book for tween girls about positive body image.

Book Review

Body Pro by Erin Falligant is a great book for tween girls about their body and will start many conversations about body image, self esteem and the messages we receive from the media.

This is an interesting book, mainly because there aren’t all that many books on this topic for tween girls. I like this book because it is full of lots of interesting facts and tips. The layout means that it is a quick and enjoyable read. My ‘nearly 13’ daughter read it and enjoyed it. She found the trivia and facts very interesting and asked me lots of questions. So it was a great conversation starter.

The book starts off by talking about what happens to your body as you go through puberty, talking about bras, periods, acne, hair care, and more. It also looks at good nutrition and how to care for your body with a healthy diet, exercise and enough sleep. Anxiety and stress is also talked about, looking at what tweens and teens do to destress. It talks about bodies in the media, and encourages girls to question what is and isn’t real.

I really like this book, and so did my daughter. It is the sort of book that would start many conversations over many years!
