Overview

It's Not Your Fault That You're Overweight is a fictional children's story depicting the life of Patty, who typifies the average overweight American kid as she encounters the emotional and physical challenges associated with an adolescent overweight condition. The story culminates with Patty overcoming these challenges and improving her health condition by better understanding the importance of good nutrition and exercise, and through an increased awareness of the overwhelming number of social pressures, corporate persuasions, media-perpetuated temptations, and other cultural influences that adversely affect her ability to make healthy choices.


The story not only portrays how America's children have been culturally programmed into obesity, but also empowers its young readers to recognize the constant stream of negative influences encountered daily, to make decisive changes in their lifestyles and, in doing so, to get on track toward a lifetime of health and wellness.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5
While these fictionalized stories will be helpful in lessening children's self-blame about obesity and empowering them to improve their lives, they are extremely simplified and make the process of losing weight seem much easier than it really is. They also assume that parents are willing (and able) to change the family's eating habits. The texts are identical, except for the names of the characters. Matt (in the boys' edition) and Patty (in the girls' edition), both 10, have made some unhealthy choices that have caused them to become severely overweight. Finally, a pediatrician explains the dangers of obesity, and the children and their parents commit to a healthy lifestyle. These books show how both characters overcome outside influences and begin to make better decisions for themselves. Black-and-white full-page drawings, in a coloring-book style, appear throughout. These books will help educate children, obese or not, about health issues, as well as the social implications of being overweight.
