ABOUT THE BOOK

My Body’s Special celebrates the uniqueness of EVERY body and encourages children to be proud of who they are.

 

Music has always been an important influence in children’s lives. From their first lullaby to songs in games, children are educated, entertained, and moved to creativity through music.

Music therapists springboard off these early experiences and introduce new melodies, tones, and sounds that will add to a child’s positive memory development to promote communication and other non-music goals.

 

These songs came out Jennifer Buchanan’s music therapy, clinical work aimed to develop motor skills, language acquisition, and the imagination process.

 

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL DISCOVER

“The themes of inclusivity, acceptance and celebration are unquestionably the strengths of this book (and song). The illustrations are colourful, lively and do an excellent job of reinforcing the book’s theme. Jennifer has created a visual accompaniment to a song that will appeal to all ages.”
