- Bank Street College Best Children's Books of the Year - 2015

"Alone, the tip to mimic a superhero's stance to build confidence makes the title a worthwhile investment.   . . . gift a copy to your child or child's teacher; help this extraordinary resource make the rounds."
   - VOYA, starred review 

Are you nervous about your presentation tomorrow? Or about going onstage for the school play? What about trying out for the baseball team? Try standing like a superhero for a few seconds before you start. Research shows that standing like a hero makes you feel--and act--like one!

Humans use words to communicate, but we also use our bodies to send messages. We may shrug our shoulders to show we don't care, or open our eyes wide in surprise, or give the thumbs up to show we approve of something. But did you know that giving the thumbs up in Greece is pretty rude? Or that nodding your head--which means "yes" in the United States and Canada--actually means "no" in the European countries of Albania and Bulgaria?
Every Body's Talking explores the complexities of body language. Discover what is really being expressed when people stand, sit, or move in certain ways and learn how you can use your body and facial expressions to communicate more effectively in a variety of situations.

About the Author:

Donna M. Jackson is an award-winning author of nonfiction books for children and holds a master's degree in journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her works include the critically acclaimed Elephant Scientists, Bone Detectives, Bug Scientists, and Wildlife Detectives--all honored by the NSTA/CBC's Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children award; ER Vets, an Orbis Pictus and ASPCA Henry Bergh honor book; and Extreme Scientists, named a Smithsonian Notable Book for Children, 2009.

The Elephant Scientist, which follows the work of Caitlin O'Connell, a researcher who studies African elephants at Etosha National Park in Namibia, has also received a 2012 Robert F. Sibert Informational Honor from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and a Boston Globe-Horn Book Nonfiction Honor.
Carol Kinsey Goman is an international keynote speaker, with more than 200 corporate clients in 24 countries, who specializes in leadership and body language. She coaches executives, entrepreneurs, salespeople, and change-agents to accelerate their success by aligning what they say with how they look (and sound) when they say it.

She is a leadership blogger for Forbes and the author of twelve books, including "The Silent Language of Leaders: How Body Language Can Help - or Hurt - How You Lead" and her latest, "The Truth About Lies in the Workplace: Hot to Spot Liars and What to Do About Them."

Review:

"A must-have for classroom libraries in classes requiring oral presentations, this book may well help students faster than any teacher encouragement. . . .  Display in public and school libraries; gift a copy to your child or child's teacher; help this extraordinary resource make the rounds."
- VOYA, starred review

"Using examples teens will recognize--young people struggling with stage fright, a teen twisting her hair nervously, young athletes avoiding the gaze of the coach--makes the narrative particularly accessible.  The chapter on cultural roots of body language, including differences in personal space, is especially compelling.   . . . A smart, accessible introduction to an important and interesting topic."
 - Kirkus

"Fascinating information about body language is clearly presented in six detailed yet easily understood chapters. . . . This intriguing title will enlighten readers about how much we say without saying a word."
 - School Library Journal

"The layout is lighthearted and the photographs are spry, while the source information is drawn from both current events and scientific experts."
 - Booklist

"Count on readers sharing this book with friends and postulating exactly who among their acquaintance 'always does that.'"
- The Bulletin
