rly age is a fundamental preventative measure. Fat Tale is an educational story showing the pitfalls of overeating. Using the empathy children have for animals, the story tells how a cute little frog gets into big trouble by becoming addicted to junk food. Gorf, the children's name for him, becomes so fat from eating sugary cereal, fries, and other scraps of fast food he can not dive down to the bottom of the pond to hibernate. Winter is coming and he will freeze. The children realize that they are lethargic and grossly overweight, too. A healthy diet of real food is adopted by all. This book will interest children in pre-school through third grade. It can be used as a supplemental text to introduce a health lesson and by concerned parents who want to teach their children about the perils of poor eating habits.
