Same here Emma. At my school, weight didn't really factor in. It was more your attitude and behavior tahat dictated how popular you were.

i think it is ridiculous and horrible. i would never buy any child that book and if anyone ever tried to give it to a child of mine i would refuse it. it sends a horrible message.

The more i think about this the more I can't believe anyone would write a book like this especially for little kids.

This would have been most depressing for me as a teenager. I was 5'5 and 110 lbs and a total social outcast. What do you do about that?

This is terrible! Lose weight, gain popularity, what a terrible lesson to teach children. You can promote healthy living without bringing weight into the equation

Most of the "losers" at my school were rail thin. It didn't make anyone like them any more. Losing weight doesn't change your personality.

I couldn't understand what would possess this man to write a book like this. If you are fat, lose weight and you will be popular?

Like our kids don't have enough self esteem issues.

This is horrible. Yes encourage healthy eating but this totally gives the message that people hate you if you're fat and when you lose weight everyone will like you which isn't the case.
