Full Mouse, Empty Mouse A Tale of Food and Feelings by Dina Zeckhausen


Full Mouse, Empty Mouse A Tale of Food and Feelings by Dina Zeckhausen

Billy Blue and Sally Rose don't know what to do when their peaceful happy life is upset by humans trying to trap and catch them! Not wanting to bother their parents, Billy Blue eats to push down his distress, while Sally Rose is so anxious she can't nibble a thing. By not expressing their feelings to anyone, their problems seem only to be getting worse until they talk with their Aunt Louise about eating and feelings. Full Mouse, Empty Mouse is one of the first books to sensitively address disordered eating for children. This book gently encourages healthy ways to express feelings and is a valuable early education tool on habits that may lead to obesity of eating disorders. Written in engaging verse and alive with rich, full-color illustrations, the book shows children healthy ways to satisfy their hunger and express their emotions.
