Animated Eagle Book Series


Animated Eagle Book Series


This series of four animated children's books promotes diabetes education and encourages a return to traditional ways, including physical activity and healthy eating. While the characters and books were originally designed to provide culturally based information for Native American children in kindergarten through fourth grade, the series may appeal to children and parents of all cultures.

The series of videos includes:

  • Through the Eyes of the Eagle (tells children about looking to the healthy ways and wisdom of their elders)
  • Knees Lifted High (gives children fun ideas for active outdoor play)
  • Plate Full of Color (teaches the value of eating a variety of colorful and healthy foods)
  • Tricky Treats (shows children the difference between healthy snacks and sweet treats)
