Grade level: Pre-K-3. This book is part of The Special Kids in School Series and is a must-have for every counselor, teacher, school nurse, parent, or caregiver. This beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybook tells the story of Tina, a kid living with a weight problem.
When read aloud, other children can start to identify why a peer with a weight problem may be treated differently and begin to empathize with the peer. In addition, children with a weight problem or children who have conditions that set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Book includes a Kid Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. 32-pages, softcover.
