"Where the material shines is in its holistic approach. Readers are encouraged to develop their inner lives as much as their physical selves and to take responsibility for their own health and eating habits." "The authors also include healthy self-esteem as a factor in obesity prevention: an entire volume is devoted to the link between food and emotions, a topic not often seen in health literature for children." "This brightly-colored, ego-boosting, responsibility-championing series is a winner."
School Library Journal
"This entire series would make a welcome addition to the elementary and middle school classroom libraries, providing ample areas of discussion and suggestions for health lessons in particular."
Review
Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
"In this series, children of all ages will benefit from the information about keeping their bodies healthy. Each book creatively provides health tips to help children overcome eating disorders, bad eating habits, and body complacency. Not only will readers find fun facts in side captions, there are also definitions of words discussed in the text."
