Library Media Connection - Sheila Acosta

"Always following the initial question of "Do you know someone who. . ." are explanations of the topic with full-color photographs and large caption boxes that are easy to follow. Unique to this series is a section that suggests how one can help, or how one can be a good friend to those with these conditions. Health and science teachers will appreciate the quiz included, which can be used to introduce a unit of study. Bright bold colors, easy-to-read fonts, and creative spacing make this an attractive series which provides a much needed reference for young students. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. –Sheila Acosta, Children’s Librarian, San Antonio, Texas Library Media Connection10/1/2011" - Library Media Connection

Omaha Public Schools - Larrienna Eisenbeisz

"This book explains obesity with kid friendly descriptions, print and photographs. The facts are presented in a straightforward manner. The book explains what obesity is, what causes it, why more people are becoming obese, how obese people might feel about themselves and being active, health issues associated with obesity, how to keep fit, suggestions for friends of obese people, and famous people who are obese.There is a true/false quiz section.Non-fiction text features include: Table of Contents, Chapters, headings, captions, photographs, bolded words, glossary, read more section, internet sites section, and index. Reservations: The message sent by the pictures associated with eating don’t seem to match the message of the text. In one picture an obese boy is sitting in front of a healthy green salad. The caption says "An overweight person needs to eat more healthy food." The boy in the picture looks extremely unhappy. Every other time there is a picture of people with food, the foods are considered to be unhealthy and the people eating them look very happy. I would have liked to see pictures with people enjoying healthy food.The pictures showing obese people participating in activities do show them happy. There is a good mixture in most of these pictures showing various sized people playing active games/sports. –Larrienna Eisenbeisz, Bancroft School Omaha Public Schools 3/28/2012" - Omaha Public Schools
