OK, I’d like to ban the word FAT in texts children read. Does anyone agree?

This might sound picky, but I don’t like the word fat. The word fat appears in many decodable readers. Decodable readers are being used across schools and it concerns me that the main character in a group of texts is described as fat… and has a popular child’s name. I’ve shared a link to an interesting article which I feel is worth reading. Personally, I’d remove all texts containing the word fat. What are your thoughts?

Somehow I’ve managed to store 30 draft posts in my blog. Time to publish!

Cheers Nina
