Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–4—In this story meant to help children understand eating disorders, two mice respond to social stressors by overeating for comfort or by failing to eat at all. Billy Blue grows fat, while Sally Rose grows thin. They don't want to trouble their parents with problems, but they do eventually confide in an aunt. Expressing their concerns puts them on the path to recovery and healthy eating. The forced nature of the rhyming text detracts from the serious message of the story. "The way for you to be your best?/Get your Heart's words off your chest./Trust your family, don't pretend,/For love will be there in the end." Paintings in an old-fashioned, realistic style match the formal tone of the text. Back matter includes an extensive note to parents, discussion questions, and Internet resources. Because few fictionalized resources exist for eating disorders, this well-intentioned book may find an audience despite the stiff presentation.—Julie R. Ranelli, Queen Anne's County Free Library, Stevensville, MD

Format: Hardcover
Written by Dina Zeckhausen, an expert in the field of eating disorders prevention, Full Mouse Empty Mouse: A Tale of Food and Feelings is a rhyming children's picturebook with an important underlying message about the importance of drawing the distinction between emotional craving for food and true hunger. Chapters teach young people how to separate "food" messages from "feelings" messages and respond properly to each. A note to parents and discussion questions round out this "must-have" for children's reading lists and library collections, especially in today's era with its unfortunately high rate of child obesity. "With Tummy and Heart they stay in touch. / They eat enough, but not too much. / They talk about the way they feel, / And now they love their family meal!"

This is a very sweet story for kids and parents. The rhyming is great and speaks to emotional eating, unintended consequences "worrying" parents sometimes have on their kids, and most of all the confidence to be found in knowing you're loved and being able to talk about what ails you. Parenting is such an awesome responsibility, and this book makes it a little easier. Thanks Dina Zeckhausen!
