When Bond’s daughter, Breanna, was nine years old, she weighed 186 pounds. Her pediatrician didn’t seem concerned, but Bond watched her daughter become increasingly inactive, withdrawn, and addicted to junk foods. Bond prayed for guidance and then decided to take on the challenge. The determined mom began by taking Breanna for nightly walks. As the pounds started coming off, Bond signed her daughter up for the swim team and looked for ways for the entire household to be more active. The secret to beating childhood obesity, Bond found, was making it a family battle. Junk food was tossed from the cupboards, and everyone began to eat healthier. Along with the story of their success, Bond includes basic menus, easy recipes, and activity tips. Although she frequently refers to her faith, Bond’s advice is so practical that every reader will find it useful. Childhood obesity is an urgent topic, and the success of Bond’s commonsense methods, which have been well documented and cele-brated on national news shows, make this straightfor-ward book a solid library purchase.
