We had some issues with a mean boy at school telling my little girl she was fat. She was devastated. She is not fat but she is not waif thin as some of the kids at school. She kept saying she wanted to be skinny. I find this sad to be occurring in the first grade. A great counselor suggested this book to me. It was well received by my daughter. She decided she wanted to be healthy and strong instead of skinny. We loved the story of the little bluebird. The only thing I will mention is, for us, the last 2 pages or so could have been left off. It talked of the little bird going to a counselor, etc. We were not at that point (with an actual food disorder) but some may be, so I see why it was included. So glad my girl is comfortable in her own featherss
I am an elementary school counselor :) This book has a good message if you are individually working with a student who has body image issues or concerns. This book "was made possibly by MCR Foundation for the prevention of eating disorders" This is not a book for classroom guidance lessons. I think I am going to return it, since I feel I would not use it "that much". If I every started working with a student who had "body image concerns", I would order this book from my amazon.com prime account.
This book title surprised my group of Special Ed young adults. As We read the book, there was an understanding of how difficult it is to be something we were not intended to be! An excellent resource for reminding folks that it is best to be ourselves, not copies of another. By using different birds, there was an acceptance of their differences being useful in different ways. For a follow up, we drew birds to somehow represent ourselves.
