"It's Not Your Fault That You're Overweight - A Story of Enlightenment, Empowerment and Accomplishment for Overweight and Obese Kids" is a first-of-its-kind fictional children's story intended to help overweight kids between the ages of eight to thirteen get on a healthy track. It also aims to motivate those within a healthy weight range to not only continue making wise lifestyle choices, but also better understand and empathize with peers currently struggling with a weight problem. The book, which comes in both a boys' and girls' edition, uniquely depicts an average overweight American child as (s)he encounters - and ultimately overcomes - the emotional and physical challenges associated with an adolescent overweight condition.
Through both easy-to-read text and endearing illustrations by esteemed artist Jerry DeCrotie, ""It's Not Your Fault That You're Overweight - A Story of Enlightenment, Empowerment and Accomplishment for Overweight and Obese Kids" helps young readers better recognize and, in turn, circumvent the constant stream of negative cultural influences encountered each day. It also encourages kids to take control of their own health situation, educations them on how to make wise dietary and fitness choices, and motivates them by depicting the many specific benefits of getting an overweight condition under control.
