Regina MarlerThough its warm, appealing illustrations could send anyone with a sweet tooth running for the cookie jar, I Get So Hungry is otherwise a lovingly conceived and carefully written salvo in the battle against childhood obesity…[it] touches on some of the causes of this epidemic, especially family eating patterns and emotional eating. Aimed at 6- to 8-year-olds, though, the book takes for granted that young children cannot control their own diets; they don't buy food or prepare meals. What the story offers instead is inspiration for becoming more physically active and pursuing hobbies and talents.
