Description


There is nobody in the world exactly like you.
You're one of a kind, and that's sort of cool.

Perfectly You will teach young readers (and listeners) to accept themselves; treat one another with compassion; and embrace their uniqueness. It provides children with the message that character comes from within while focusing on the importance of self-acceptance, tolerance, and leading an overall healthy lifestyle. Loving ourselves from the inside out takes time, patience, and practice. Start young

About the Author


Julia V. Taylor, Ph.D., is a zony, brainy and overall cool person.She is a school counselor, which means she helps kids with the trails and tribulations of growing up. She likes to run, travel, cook, and make people laugh. She is not a size or shape, she's just Julia.Prior to academia, Taylor worked as middle and high school counselor for eight years. Afterward, she was appointed to the founding leadership team for Wake County Public School's first single gender academy, where she served as the Dean of Student Services. During her time as a practitioner, she focused the majority of her research on body image, media literacy, relational aggression, and girls' leadership development. In turn, she authored The Body Image Workbook for Teens, The Bullying Workbook for Teens, Salvaging Sisterhood, G.I.R.L.S: Group Counseling Activities for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development (G.I.R.L.S. is two separate curricula, one for secondary ages, and another for elementary ages), and a children's book, Perfectly You.Taylor frequently presents this line of research to parents, educators, school counselors, and students across the country. She has a passion for helping girls develop a true sense of self, stand up to unrealistic media expectations, take healthy risks, and cultivate meaningful relationships.When not working, she enjoys yoga, running, reading, and spending time with friends and family in Brooklyn, NY - her home away from home.Phillip W. Rodgers is an award-winning, creative wizard with a BIG heart for children. As well as being a classically trained artist and illustrator, he is also an author, musician, husband, and most importantly...proud father.
