The Genetics of Obesity

The Genetics of Obesity

by Stephanie Watson

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9

By focusing on a single issue (and a timely one at that), this series inspires a keen awareness of the complexities of obesity. The books complement one another but can also stand alone. While one will mention, for example, that media has an influence over body image and food choices, another elaborates and clearly defines those responsible. Even when facts and statistics overlap, the books present them within different contexts. Consistent through the series is the deference to and citing of experts, inclusion of current photographs, commitment to balanced viewpoints, and overall teen appeal. At the conclusion of each volume, readers are instructed to access the publisher's Web site, which has regularly updated links.
