Editorial Reviews

Review

"The last thing I expected to do while reading this colorful and celebratory book for youth was cry, but as I went through each page I found myself with tears streaming down my face. Tears for my "past pre-teen self" who finally, after twenty years, felt seen... and tears for the next generation of amazing humans who will have this extraordinary guidebook (and Sonya) to hold their hand while explaining how their bodies are undeniably remarkable in every way."—Jes Baker, Body Positive Activist, author of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls​ and Landwhale

"Celebrate Your Body is a wonderful book full of wisdom and affirmation for young girls at a time when their lives are fraught with change. Thank you, Sonya Renee, for writing a book about puberty that is both informative and joyous! What a gift! A must read for the tweens in all of ourlives."—Deb Hauser, President, Advocates for Youth

"This book exemplifies the love and care that is necessary to help young people grow into healthy adults. As an educator, I am privy to unfortunate outcomes of miseducation when talking about puberty. Sonya has managed to create an experience of celebration through her thoughtful approach to delivering the facts about puberty in a way that can help girls feel proud of their bodies and the puberty experience."―Patrick Smith Director of Education, Equity & Inclusion, Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania

“Taylor’s book unapologetically leads with the positive, focusing much more on what bodies can do rather than what they look like. Even with that focus, Taylor manages to hammer home that all bodies are beautiful, that it’s possible to be healthy at every size, and that each body progresses at its own rate…”―Rachelle Hampton, slate.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Positive about puberty but suggests gender questioning
By LC on June 15, 2019
I love that this book has a very positive take on puberty, and though it is secular, it speaks of the awesome gift of the body that God gave to women. However, because my daughter loves sports and “boy” Legos and detests nail polish and pink, I’m afraid she may get the wrong message from the book. Because a girl does not like what is stereotypically “girly”, in no way means she should start questioning her gender. Girls come in all shapes and sizes as this book clearly states, BUT also in all different personalities, all equally female. I love the book except for the 3 pages that suggest gender questioning, which may not be in line with some families’ values.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOOK NO FURTHER for an inclusive, straightforward, age-appropriate, positive guide to puberty!
By CurlyKayak on July 7, 2018
I've researched dozens & dozens of books for my 10y.o niece, and 'Celebrate Your Body' is EXACTLY what I was looking for!

Everything in Sonya Renee Taylor's approach is positive and encouraging. She acknowledges many colors and body types and provides just the right amount of detail for a tween/pre-teen reader.

*Every other book I researched in this genre had an inordinate focus on appearance & traditional notions of beauty.* Something I wanted to avoid.
They also, without exception, addressed interest in "boys" - excluding anyone who might not be interested in boys & reinforcing the confusion they may be feeling about not being "normal." To be clear, the book doesn't encourage or even go into detail on this topic, it simply refers to developing feelings for "someone" using generic pronouns. This is just one example of Sonya Renee Taylor's subtle approach to inclusiveness & cultural sensitivity.

If you're looking for an encouraging, straightforward, medically accurate, inclusive guide for your 9-12y.o, This. Is. Your. Book.

Adult readers: If you haven't already checked out the author's other book, "The Body Is Not An Apology," I highly recommend doing so. Sonya Renee Taylor is a gift to Humanity ♡
