“I Like Lots” by Isaacsen-Bright is about a boy who likes to eat junk food (and a lot of it). The book starts out with him looking pretty normal. It talks about the things he likes to do such as going to sport events and eating three hot dogs in an inning. Instead of swimming or playing in the swimming pool, he just likes to float around. The pictures of him get plumper and plumper as the story goes on. In the middle of the book, he can’t find clothes that fit and he doesn’t have any pep.
He finally goes to see the doctor and the doctor tells him that he has gotten too heavy and that he will feel better if he loses some weight. The doctor give him three rules: eat better, exercise more, and stick with it. So, he starts to read books about how to eat better, he starts biking and walking his dog, and he drinks water instead of soda. The pictures of him shrink, and he starts to feel better.
I would recommend this book to parents who have kids who have a problem with eating too much junk food and not exercising enough. It wasn’t the most fun book for me to read but it could be really helpful to a kid who has a problem. The advice in “I Like Lots” by Isaacsen-Bright was good for everybody.
