  • Best Fat Camp Book Ever I borrowed this one from my church library and just never returned it Sorry, Mrs Bergin.


  • I read this the first time in fifth gradeI know this because I found my fifth grade teacher s name in the front cover I kept the book and I m not sorry She wasn t ver nice But I did enjoy the book then and now I read it recently to the kids We were looking for something with less substance than Call of the Wild yuck My kids thought it was funny to find out how the boys stashed junk food at fat camp, and the whole book just made me hungry I m sure that wasn t the author s intended reactionnethele [...]


  • This is a terrific book for studying social issues Ned s choice to TRY and lose weight is the hardest part for him, and without giving any spoilers, I want any future reader out there to know that the book is worth reading on so many levels I read this one about30 years ago, got an autograph from Robert Kimmel Smith somehow, and am so glad I picked it up again Really terrific for 4th 5th grade readers Funny, on point, thematic, and, of course, has problems that must be faced.


  • I first read this book perhaps 20 years ago I remember I got it at a Goodwill or one of those thrift stores To this day it remains one of my favorite kid books I recently thought about it and decided to pick it up again I d read it so many times as a kid, so almost no part of the story was foreign to me, however, I enjoyed it immensely all the same.It s nice to read the reviews and know I m not the only one that s now an adult who re read this book and liked it just as much now as we did back th [...]


  • Nathaniel Robbins is an overweight kid trys to lose weight, but can t His parents send him to a camp to lose weight in the summer He tries his hardest to not eat, but still manages to do it He only loses a few pounds at the end But at home he manages to pull himself together to lose enough weight to be healthy There is a text to self connection to Nathaniel and myself When I tried to learn how to swim in a camp, I never tried to actually learn But once it was over, I managed to learn how to do i [...]


  • Another book in addition to Writing and Selling Science Fiction whose title I ve forgotten for years and only remembered today I m rating the book four stars based on my nine year old self s opinion of it I have no idea what I d rate it as a seventeen year old with somewhat sophisticated tastes I also read Jelly Belly and The Kid Who Ran For President in a thrift store, so it s not as if I brought it home and re read it over and over, as with The BFG or Chester Cricket s New Home, for example I [...]


  • What I thought about this book is that it was very enjoyable and funny to read This book made me think of my own parents, not because they would send me to a camp only for fat kids like Ned,because they love him for who he is he just really needs to watch what he is eating One of my favorite characters that were in it was the grandma it also reminds me of my grandma that always tells us to keep on eating all of the sweets that she makes for us Jelly Belly is a good book for younger ages and I ne [...]


  • I have now finished jelly belly by Robert Kimmel Smith this enlightening tale is about a boy named ned who is the skinniest kid in his family until his grandma cooked for them now he is 4 8 and 118 pounds the kids at shool call him jelly belly and his parents send him to fat camp there, he was unsuccessful, but later on, he really did want to be skinny, and he was determined to lose weight, AND stand up to the school bully who started the whole nicknaming mess.


  • Just as wonderful at 46 years old as the first time I read it when I was in 4th gradeStill totally relevant, my daughter in 6th grade is reading it with me I recommend this funny, sad and ultimately uplifting book


  • I picked this up at a library book sale because I vaguely remembered reading it in elementary school It s a great story for anyone who s ever felt like the fat kid


  • This is one of my favorite childhood books and I reread it today before giving it to my kids When this book was written, being fat was an anomaly, unlike today when obesity is the norm This book follows Nathaniel on his journey to understanding why and how he became fat and eventually how to fix it He comes to the realization that it is only himself he is cheating Excellent book for kids and should be read by everyone in the fat acceptance movement who is kidding themselves that their weight is [...]


  • Jelly Belly is nickname for fat boy called Nathaniel Robbins, and he has a lot of nickname Nathaniel like to eat to mush especially his grandmother s cook And his weigh than his mother weigh He go to camp to less his weigh I think Robert Kimmel Smith is a good writer Because he doesn t only tells us the story, he but some dialogue in the book to tell you how the parents convinces his sun to go to the camp, not like his parent convinces him to go to the camp.


  • I love jelly belly and how he can not loss enough weight so he has to go to camp lean to He is so desprit to have something besides camp lean to s food and so he eats white bread and cheese even though he does not like it So finaly he tells his grandma to stop feeding him so much food and starts to lose weight.


  • I first read this when I was about Neddie s age, and just remembered it the other day So, I re read it I must say I enjoyed it the second time, 15 years or so later It s an inspiration to anyone who knows they are overweight, that they should lose, and just don t have the motivation Cute, and a fast read I ll probably re read it again and again


  • This is a younger childhood favorite I remember my teacher from second grade reading this book to us, I was so into it I read it again myself and just loved this book so much I will never forget it This book will be an everlasting memory I recommend this book to children, such a wonderful children s read It s silly and witty


  • Ini buku bagus lho karena mengupas permasalahan anak2 yang overweight, and kenapa some of them itu berhasil menurunkan berat badan for good sementara yang lainnya ituu selalu aja tiap tahun kembali terus ke kamp pengurusan, ahahaha mungkin perlu ngikutin step2 yang dilakukan si Ned untuk menurunkan berat badannya D





  • Another childhood favorite I reread with the kids Good lessons in it, even though I had to reword a few curses in there The kids both loved it.


  • Another one of those Robert Kimmel Smith booksYou may know that I had this one year when I was absolutely obbssesed with his books.



  • A surprisingly accurate tale of a young boy s battle with the bulge Despite the cheesy name, this is a decent book The characters have depth and all is realistically not smooth sailing.
