One of the current hot topics in the media is the alarming rate of increase in childhood obesity. Addressing obesity is of the highest priority yet not at the expense of contributing to negative body images and shattered self-esteem. "She had the desire and she had the will," Maggie Eats Healthier" is another empowering book written by Paul M. Kramer. Controversial in nature, the delicate balance between promoting healthier living while remaining sensitive to the feelings of our children is no easy task. The positive message conveyed to youth is to take care of yourself and be the best person that you can be for yourself.

Having volunteered in the children's section of a public library gave me the chance to read quite a few children's books; some were excellent and some not so great. However, in this case, I enjoyed this book for several reasons: First it relates with what children go through when they are not accepted by their peers because of how they look on the outside. Second, I loved that Maggie was so determined to eat right and be healthy, which is important for children. She did not diet and make herself sick, but she ate the right kinds of foods to help her lose weight and she also exercised. And in the last section where you write about not eating to fill a void, etc., I thought that section was brilliant! Overall, you covered every aspect of what an overweight child goes through, the correct way to take care of itself so not only they lose weight but also remain healthy. I also liked the title a lot. Just the title made me want to read the book to see what it was about.
