Today I spoke to the fabulous students at Union Middle School in Sandy, Utah. I showed them this photo of me from 7th grade.
I’m really excited to be participating in Once Upon A Bookshelf’s Body Image Month. If you’ve read My Big Nose And Other Natural Disasters, you already know how much I care about these issues. I try really, really hard to feel good about my own body (after years of hating my nose). But now I have daughters and I know that I have to be a good role model.
You know that old saying about not judging a book by its cover? Well, my shelves are full of books I bought simply because I loved the cover. And I’ve heard from many people who have bought my book, My Big Nose And Other Natural Disasters, simply because they loved the cover.
