Hear What Other Readers Have Said About Wade’s Story

“As someone who has suffered from poor body image my whole life, I can pinpoint what experiences, message, and examples from my childhood greatly influenced that problem for me. Even children who are raised in healthy-body-image homes are constantly seeing via ads and social media that their bodies need to be at a certain standard in order to be deemed acceptable in their own eyes. I would love for kids–both girls AND boys–to arrive into adulthood having a stronger, more accepting relationship with their bodies than I had. This book does just that. It’s straightforward, doable, and a message I can 100% get behind. It covers what we can do within our home as well as how to face the outside messages kids are sure to face. It’s never too early or too late to talk about body image issues; so join the conversation via this book!”

“It’s always important to remember the difference between ‘healthy’ and ‘popular.’ The media puts a lot of ideas and beliefs about what a ‘good body’ looks like into the minds of our children and youth. Wade’s Story is a simple read that makes it easier to teach our children to understand and learn to analyze what the media tells them about their bodies.”
