This series provides teachers and other professionals with ammunition in the war against childhood obesity. Each book presents a different facet of this issue -- healthy eating choices and emotional and self-esteem issues. Topics are presented sympathetically and clearly for young readers, explaining the reasons, the risks, and ways to fight back against obesity.
"Where the material shines is in its holistic approach. Readers are encouraged to develop their inner lives as much as their physical selves and to take responsibility for their own health and eating habits." "The authors also include healthy self-esteem as a factor in obesity prevention: an entire volume is devoted to the link between food and emotions, a topic not often seen in health literature for children." "This brightly-colored, ego-boosting, responsibility-championing series is a winner."
"This entire series would make a welcome addition to the elementary and middle school classroom libraries, providing ample areas of discussion and suggestions for health lessons in particular." Review
"In this series, children of all ages will benefit from the information about keeping their bodies healthy. Each book creatively provides health tips to help children overcome eating disorders, bad eating habits, and body complacency. Not only will readers find fun facts in side captions, there are also definitions of words discussed in the text."
