Myth: Her Body Can is just for girls.⠀ ⠀ NO. WAY. Let's raise our boys to appreciate and respect all girls and to know that they are not ornaments, but equal and capable people. ⠀ ⠀ Who has a son who loves this book?!

We want to be very clear in our stance on racial injustice. We firmly believe that no lives matter until Black lives matter and are committed to listening, learning, and fighting for the Black community who is overdue for our collective attention. We will be pausing content here, for now, to make space for Black voices to be amplified during this particularly critical point in history. Please visit our stories where we will continue to share Black voices in literature, Black-owned booksellers, and resources on how to talk to your children about racism and inclusion. ⠀ ⠀ Sending love, peace, and strength.⠀ @katiemcrenshaw , @adymeschke & @east26thpublishing

⁣Show of hands! How many of you are ready for another book?!? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣We are filled with endless amounts of gratitude for your support for Her Body Can. Honestly we might have been satisfied with one....and the small change it helped create in the world.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣But...as soon as she launched, one of the most commonly asked questions we received was if we planned on writing another one! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣The answer is YES!! It is in the works now, and we are excited to share more details soon! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Who is excited to learn more?!

⁣THIS is why we wrote Her Body Can. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Not for the accolades. We weren’t sure how the world would receive the book. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Not for the money. We didn’t really think we would make any.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Not for the recognition. We didn’t expect any. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣We wrote it so that even if one little girl had this book sitting by her bed at night, who read it as a bedtime story and slept knowing its truths, that it would be worth it. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Seeing these pictures that you send us - with the book next to your child’s bed - makes it worth it every day. Please keep sharing! And if you know anybody who could use it, send them to this page. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Our dream is that, one day, all little girls will know these truths. #selflovemovement #selflovefirst #selflovematters #booksforgirls #booksforher #booksforkids #childrensbooks #childrensbookstagram #girlpower #summerreading #selflovetips cc: @momsinknots

Another spread story!! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣This is one of our favorite lines in Her Body Can. When we first completed the manuscript, it brought us to tears. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣The idea that one day, our girls would look at themselves in the mirror and without any question, understand that they are perfect exactly the way they are.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣And we adore the way @lilyliu21 captured this attitude so perfectly in her illustration, #croptop and all! #booksforkids #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #booksforgirls #girlpower #selfloveforgirls #summerreading #summerreadinglist #kidsread #booksforchildren #booksfortoddlers #toddlerbooks #toddlerbookworm #girlbook #girlbooks #selflove #bodypositive #bodypositivity

⁣What we should be teaching our girls: ⁣ ⁣ ⁣✨How to smile at themselves everyday ⁣ ⁣✨How to be proud of what they see and what they cannot see⁣ ⁣✨How to laugh and be silly; lightness towards their inner and outer selves⁣ ⁣✨How to have new adventures everyday⁣ ⁣✨How to love everything about themselves with the same joy with which they approach the world ✨ What #herbodycan ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Picture courtesy of @ashley_dorough !! 💕 Isn’t her daughter adorable?!? ⁣

Even our boys CAN read this book! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Especially today. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Although “Her Body Can” was written for and about girls, it’s important that our boys learn to respect and empower girls’ bodies at a young age. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Author @adymeschke shares that the importance of teaching her son about how strong and beautiful ALL women are, and modeling it for him in her words and actions at home will give him an especially strong respect for women as he grows.
