How To Be Comfortable In Your Own Feathers

By Julia Cook, illustrated by Anita DuFalla

(Grades 3 & Up) Bluebird, along with most everyone else at school, wants to flutter like the most popular bird in their class, Hummingbird.

"You should go on a diet, and work out at the gym. You could flutter like me, if your body was thin."

Bluebird takes this comment seriously and starts to develop unhealthy eating habits. Mom comes to the rescue by teaching Bluebird balance and by explaining that everyone needs to feel comfortable in their own feathers. With help from the Bird Doc and the Food Voice Counselor, Bluebird learns to control the Food Voice that is living inside.

"I’m working on balance one day at a time. If I keep working hard, I should be just fine."

"A great and creative approach to educating children about accepting their bodies and encouraging them to admire how everyone is unique and different. How To Be Comfortable in Your Own Feathers can help children gain perspective when they compare themselves negatively to others, and teach them how to counter that perspective with acceptance and insight. Since eating disorders now are seen in increasing numbers in children as young as 5 or 6, this book is even more timely and needed!"
