School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-This well-organized, informative book looks at the rate of obesity in the United States and its dramatic increase. While many think that the issue is clear cut, the reality is that there is much debate over its causes, effects, and future. Each of the four chapters discusses a different aspect of obesity (the severity of the problem, what's causing it, how to reduce it, and who is responsible), and each chapter includes six to eight articles that represent different views. Each one includes a few thought-provoking questions to consider while reading. An excellent starting point for reports.-Kristen M. Todd, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
