The Great Shape Debate

by Susanne Munn

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
It all comes full circle after a debate breaks out in a town full of shapes. One by one, they give their opinion on which shape they'd rather be and why. That is, until one of them offers up a heartfelt lesson in self love, exposing the beauty behind being different. But will the others shape up?

The Great Shape Debate is a timeless tale that has a message for "kids" of all ages: IT'S OK TO BE YOU! Through bold, graphic illustrations and rhyming prose, it offers a warm hug of acceptance to anyone who has ever struggled with being, feeling, or looking different---especially those who are struggling with their weight/body image, gender and sexual orientation, neurodiversity, physical and learning disabilities, mental health, etc.
