Amanda’s Big Dream
  • ISBN#: 978-0692377819

It’s not always kids who make other kids feel badly; sometimes, adults say mean things, too. A great example of how focusing on weight instead of health can deter people from doing what they love. Shows how healthcare professionals, coaches, and parents play a very important role in children’s lives. This book explains how you can be healthy and physically fit even though you don’t fit into the ‘ideal’ body style. Young reader’s will relate to Amanda’s struggles, and find courage in her choices.
