Love The Skin You’re In

by Kate Claxton, illustrated by Angela Mayers

Let’s take what makes us different and instead of trying to hide,
Let’s be more like animals and wear our marks with pride!

Eliza tells everyone she meets that her mum is a TlGER! But Mum doesn’t have sharp claws or a tail, and she doesn’t live in the jungle…

Find out what makes Eliza’s mum so wild in this beautiful story of embracing the skin we’re in and celebrating all our spots and stripes.
