Everybody Has a Body
Oxford University Press
In his characteristic playfully daft style, Jon Burgerman takes a look at bodies.
We all have one after all, and no matter its shape, size or colour, our body is something we should be proud of.
He presents us with zany illustrations of big bodies and small bodies, wide ones and tall ones; bodies weak and strong,
narrow and looooooooong.
Then of course, there are hairy bodies as well as the smooth variety.
Some bodies might make us clumsy while others make us groove.
Either a soft body or a rough one is a possibility, as is one bendy or tough.
There’s also the thorny question of age, since a body may be old or new.
The one thing that is certain though, is this:
What a lot of bodies – has Jon captured yours in his zany art and rhyming words?
A fun read aloud with lots to think about and talk about; equally, with its brief text and fun art, this is great for those starting to read to try for themselves, and SO much more interesting than a dull scheme book.
