Today’s world is very judgmental. I have tried to teach my children to look beyond what a person looks like on the outside to the type of person they are on the inside. It’s a lesson that is sometimes easier to talk about than to put into practice.

In the story of “Fatty Betty” by Nirit Littaney Betty is an overweight little girl who is teased at school. When one of her classmates is hurt on the playground, will Betty rush to his aide or turn her back on him and walk away?

I loved the concept behind the story. The story didn’t focus on Betty trying to lose weight to fit in with the crowd. In today’s society so much focus is placed on being “perfect on the outside” that sometimes we need to be reminded we have to work on being a nice person and loving ourselves for who we are…not who we think the world wants us to be.

I needed to keep an open mind as I read the story. The book starts out by calling Betty a cute fat girl. At first I was offended by this description but then I realized that this book is geared toward younger children and this is wording that they can understand. I tried to think of another way the author could have described Betty and I didn’t come up with anything better.

In the story Betty likes to eat sweets. I like how the author shows how unhealthy food can add to weight gain. Like most kids, my kids would love to have sweets and candy all the time. This story gave me the opportunity to show them the results of eating too much junk food. We talked about the consequences of eating too much junk food and why it should be saved for a treat and not an everyday thing.

The second part of the story that raised some concern for me was when Betty left the school grounds without letting an adult know.Read more ›

Fatty Betty author Nirit Littaney

Israeli author Nirit Littaney is a nutritionist, medical coach, and spiritual leader. After being confined to her bed for years by an incurable illness, Nirit experienced the same triumph of spirit that many of her characters undergo in their journeys through lands near and far. She has successfully joined the ranks of children’s books writers – but her stories, while humorous, encourage children to stretch their imagination while learning some valuable lessons. She has elected to have Anahit Aleksanyan provide the illustrations for this her seventh children’s book to appear on Kindle.

Betty is a cute fat girl who loves to eat sweets. Her classmates make fun of her for being fat, nicknaming her Fatty Betty, teasing her by calling her chunky and porky. Betty is sensitive to these insults and locks herself in the restroom to cry. She tries being nice to these mean kids but she doesn’t get kindness in return. Betty sits on the bench alone during playtime, but one day she sees a boy named Brad injured and n response Betty runs off the schoolyard until she reaches her father’s office – her father is a doctor. Betty takes her father to the location where Brad is injured and her father cleans the wound, examines Brad carefully, and reassures him he will be fine. Brad’s attitude towards Betty changes and he is indebted to her for her kindness. And form that day forward all of Fatty Betty’s classmates appreciate her inner beauty and make her a member of the group.

It is a fine little story about accepting people as unique and appreciating them for who they are, that no one should be judged by his or her appearance alone. Well done, Nirit, but what about the current problem with obesity in children? Maybe another book is coming down the line to address that. Grady Harp, July 15

I love a story, especially a children’s book, which guides and leaves a lesson or a moral in the closing lines. That is what I appreciated about Fatty Betty. We’ve all known this little girl or boy from our youth; or perhaps it was you or one of your children, but there is nothing more troublesome than being ridiculed or abused for your size, color, or appearance. Our youngest son endured this same sad treatment because he was small and thin. He learned to hate school because of the way he was treated. If this book can save one child the heartache of being teased or bullied, then we all should support it.

The illustrations are fun, colorful and bright, and will capture a child’s attention. I look forward to sharing it with my grandchildren at their next visit. I wish the author well with this book, it is a tool parents should use when teaching their children the principles of tolerance and acceptance – something we all can use.

I would recommend this book to parents of small children – it makes for some interesting discussions at bedtime.
