Far from presenting a simple story for children, I Am My Body, NOT! presents a rather complex concept -- that we are something other than our physical form -- in a remarkably simple way that children (ages 6 years and up) can comprehend and accept. The author, Adam Abraham and illustrator, Marie Litster, have created a whimsical, friendly, and most of all, positive experience in a way that might best be described as "religion-neutral."
Parents, grandparents and educators are sure to love I Am My Body, NOT! because its rational, sensitive and inclusive portrayal of human issues crosses barriers of color, class, and culture. In addition, the innovative, color-coded Vocabulary Power Builder™ system enhances the book's value as both a reading and language teaching tool.
A new perennial is born.

We have endeavored to provide a reading experience that, in a positive way, not only stimulates not only the imagination, but also, the young conscience. Respecting the many belief systems that legions of readers bring to a book purchase decision, I Am My Body, NOT! appeals to the human in us all. Hopefully, it will hit the mark with you.From the Author:
I Am My Body, NOT! was the wonderful gift that I received one morning as a part of my daily writing exercise. The story essentially told itself to me -- with its own unique rhythm and pulse -- as I typed on my computer.
The Vocabulary Power Builder came into being after some readers commented that some the words used might be over the head of young readers. So instead of dumbing the verbiage down, we chose to enhance the book's educational value by color-coding some of the more challenging words and adding the definitions in the back.--Adam Abraham
