    Over here at R29, we're all about celebrating every body type (and helping you to flattering yours, to boot). We're not ones to play favorites with soccer legs, Botticelli curves, ballerina bods, or anything else, really.

    BUT, that's not to say we don't appreciate it when others take a moment to shout out what they love about their own shape. And, that's precisely what Becky Murphy does in her out-on-Tuesday book, I'd Rather Be Short. It's an illustrated love letter to petite ladies, calling out 100 reasons to celebrate your height (or lack thereof). Pretty empowering. And, chock-full of charming illustrations, it's pretty adorable, too. Click on through for a few of our favorite reasons (although, the inability to outgrow a tree house or a twin-size bed are pretty appealing, too).

    Then, take to the comments with your own additions for why you'd rather be short...or tall...or somewhere in between.
