A Children's Book on Bullying

Ella visits the park and meets a new boy.

He yells. “You’re so fat!” Full of anger, no joy.

His anger hurts Ella and makes her feel sad.

She questions herself, “Is my fat tummy bad?”

 

Ella's Tummy addresses teasing and bullying about weight during a time when the disdain for overweight seems ever-present, and eating disorders in children are rampant. It touches on parental support for building self-esteem and how others may project their bad feelings. Finally, it's about self-examination and independent thought.

 

Although a book for young children, the uncompromising artwork and verse will appeal to any age.

Rebecca Jane Weinstein is the daughter and a writer of books about mostly grownups with round tummies. You can find her work at RebeccaJaneWeinsteinWriter.com.

Joyce Ellen Weinstein is the mother and an artist who draws and paints many things, including round tummies. You can find her work at JoyceEllenWeinstein.com.

"Children are teased and bullied about weight. Here is a book that doesn't shy away from the word "fat" and addresses this tough topic head on for children, from a place of love." ~ Katja Rowell, MD. "The Feeding Doctor"

 

"I bought this book to share with my 4 year old daughter. I want her to grow up knowing that every body is different and that just by being herself she's perfect. Ella's Tummy delivers this message so well and in a way that's both beautiful and easy to comprehend. I highly recommend this book for children and for any grown up who is just learning to love themselves." ~ Jennifer McLeod
