Note: I received a review copy of this book free from the author, Christopher Holley. The review posted below is based on my personal thoughts while reading the book.

My thoughts:

Since having health issues the past year, it has become my mission to make my family eat healthy. Chumbalina's fairy tale story is simple but this picture book tremendously helped me improve my kids' diet. Now they understand the importance and benefits of healthy eating. Love the illustrations and matching colors! 

Definitely, a book I recommend for struggling moms out there looking for ways to make their young kids eat healthy.

About the book:

In today's society, it's important to remind children that embracing their own individuality is a wonderful thing. Enter Chumbalina, a princess who enjoys eating so much she becomes an outcast. However, the tables are turned when a gluttonous giant comes to the kingdom and she must rescue everyone doing what she loves most, eating.

Chumbalina, the main character in this children's picture book, is teased for the way she looks and how much she eats. By viewing the world through her eyes, children will walk away recognizing that true beauty comes from within.

Chumbalina the Plump Princess teaches children to respect differences and find inner beauty in all of us! It embraces self-love, self-esteem and acceptance.

About the author:

New Yorker, Christopher Holley, has been an elementary school educator for over 12 years. Through working closely with children he has developed and refined his voice, drawing inspiration from greats like Roald Dahl, David A. Adler and Jeff Kinney.

In his children's stories, Christopher tackles tough issues like water conservation, body image and acceptance. However, he has a whimsical side as well, telling tales of students being put in charge of their school, a fairy that grants moustaches and choosing super-duper super powers.

Moving forwards, Christopher's goals are to continue working closely with children as an educator, and to author many more fantastic, kid-friendly stories.

On a personal basis, Christopher is engaged and he simply loves dogs! In his spare time, he enjoys the Martial Arts, football and strategy games.
