Body positivity shines through a jaunty rhyming text...Individual examples are then followed by the hearty refrain "When I look in the mirror, / what do I see?// Big and bold and beautiful me!" Burgett's images effectively use mirrors to depict the kids' attitude shifts as they share their stories--from initial peering to celebrating their own reflection. As the expressive children, one by one, gather to play at a nearby park, readers may well be feeling the cheerful undercurrent of affirmation and support. Ages 4-8. --Publishers Weekly
An upbeat, uncomplicated ode to bodies that are big, thick, broad, and boundless. --Kirkus Reviews
