Equal parts heartwarming, funny, and empowering, this stunning photography book celebrates kids' favorite things about themselves. 

An award-winning photographer asked children, "What is the best part of you?" Their answers accompany striking black-and-white photographs in this sometimes funny, sometimes moving, deeply personal book. A great lead-in to discussing body image and self-esteem with young readers, this beautiful work showcases a diverse range of kids and the confidence they all have about their bodies.
