Reviewed by Micaela Alpert for Readers' Favorite Finding A Happy Medium...Understanding and Preventing Childhood Obesity by Tracy Bryan is a great book for children to learn more about obesity, what it is, what it can cause, and how to help prevent it from happening. Bryan targets this book toward children to help prevent obesity at a young age. Bryan gives terminology and definitions to explain what things are. There are also a lot of pictures in this book, which help younger children stay focused on the subject matter. Bryan also explains that people are people, and if a person is fat, it could just be genetics. Bryan does a good job teaching young readers to be open to different ideas and different solutions in treating and handling obesity. Finding A Happy Medium was an excellent book for me. I really loved it and enjoyed reading it. I have had problems when I was younger. Except mine were dealing with being too skinny. Everybody would constantly tell me to eat more. I wish I'd had this book's information back then. I loved the links that Bryan included in the back of the book. I am currently using them, and know others will too. I definitely recommend this book for people who want to learn more about obesity, and for young readers and some young adult readers who want to help themselves and others with the obesity problem happening across the world.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite In Finding a Happy Medium... Understanding & Preventing Childhood Obesity: (Awesome & Diverse!) Volume 7, it’s apparent that author Tracy Bryan really cares about how to make the information in this book easily absorbed by readers. The prose is clear-cut and engaging. Kids and adults can effortlessly comprehend and value the facts in Finding a Happy Medium. Everything is made clear – every important term, particularly medical ones, comes with a definition and is easily explained. Active lifestyles and healthy eating through community involvement are not the only solution to combat child obesity. It also focuses on solutions through behavioral, social and environmental aspects. Body shaming, which is easily done through social media, is an ugly fad that is happening in our society today. Tracy determines to create understanding through her narrative, “If we are going to make a change anywhere in our world, it might just be with changing our attitude about obesity first.” A glossary is provided, as well as a list of obesity awareness websites and other health-related sources on the internet. There’s also info and tips from Let’s Move!, a popular program developed by First Lady Michelle Obama to get to the bottom of the epidemic issue of childhood obesity. I’m well aware of this program and it does have a significant impact (no matter how little) on other countries, even though its main focus is in the United States. It’s a great and innovative campaign; I hope it could be more globalized in the future. Overall, Tracy provided us with a very informative book to strengthen our commitment to not just fighting obesity, but changing our negative views regarding the issue.
