Finding Your Fit: A Kid-to-Kid Guide to Fitness, Food, and Feelings
The story line of Finding Your Fit is engaging and defines basic terminology in a way that is easy to comprehend for children. Children identify with the main character Gabby, as she learns to live a healthy lifestyle and develop positive self-esteem. Woven through the story are talking points and reflective journaling writing opportunities where children can express their thoughts and emotions, while parents can keep gather valuable information through this form of communication. Finding Your Fit opens the lines of communication and support that children are often lacking as they begin to develop self-esteem and identity. Bibliotherapy (using books to assist in problem solving relevant to the therapeutic process) is a valuable intervention for helping children cope with stressors and can provide structured communication between caregivers and children.
Finding Your Fit is a valuable resource for families, therapists, school personnel, and other professionals who work with children on the topics of fitness, nutrition, and development of positive self-esteem and acceptance.
