|Reviewers Comments: ||Eagle Vision is a pictorial essay that features opinions from American Indian teens about health and good nutrition. The intent of this booklet is clearly stated and main ideas are well organized. Information is accurate and up to date. Facts are found in each topic section that emphasize important facts which teens may not have previously thought about. Materials share opinions, facts, and ask a few questions, but do not include interactive activities. Summaries are not included in this booklet.
This booklet is appropriately geared towards the special needs and interests of the target group such as nutritional needs while growing, playing sports and learning to accept one’s body. Booklet uses vocabulary that is easy to understand and contains a glossary to explain any terms that may not be familiar to the reader. Photos are culturally appropriate, depicting American Indian youth. Color, design and layout of materials are attractive and stimulate interest. However, some graphics may take away from the important material being presented, such as on the “What if you have a snack attack?” page, the question is much smaller than the answers, which are blue, randomly placed on the page and hard to follow. A sample one day menu is available that compares the cost, calorie amount and fiber of eating out versus eating healthful meals typically prepared at home.
