"The Eagle Books are a series of four books that are brought to life by wise animal characters, Mr. Eagle and Miss Rabbit, and a clever trickster, Coyote, who engage Rain That Dances and his young friends in the joy of physical activity, eating healthy foods, and learning from their elders about traditional ways of being healthy."

You may:

*         Check out the big books<http://catalog.osl.state.or.us/search~S2/t?SEARCH=eagle+book+series> from the State Library via interlibrary loan. Any Oregonian, with a current photo ID, may check out circulating materials by coming to the Reference Room or by asking their local library to request materials through interlibrary loan-note this is a different method than usual for checking these out because these items are not in our LIS collection.

*         Watch the videos<http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/projects/ndwp/ebtoolkit/mixed-media.htm> of the books online.

*         Order FREE copies of each book<http://wwwn.cdc.gov/pubs/diabetes.aspx> from the CDC (while supplies last) and enter it into your library's circulating collection.

*         Post the videos on your library's website and/or enter them into your library's collection like the State library has<http://catalog.osl.state.or.us/search~S2?/teagle+book+series/teagle+book+series/1%2C5%2C8%2CB/exact&FF=teagle+book+series&1%2C4%2C>.

*         Host a storytime where you read one or more of these books and use these resources<http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/projects/ndwp/ebtoolkit/ebtoolkit.htm> to plan art projects, displays, and decorations.

"The books were developed by the CDC Division of Diabetes Translation's Native Diabetes Wellness Program<http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/projects/diabetes-wellness.htm>, in collaboration with the Tribal Leaders Diabetes Committee and the Indian Health Service, in response to the burden of diabetes among Native Americans and the need for diabetes prevention materials for children. The series, written by Georgia Perez (who served as a Community Health Representative for 19 years in Nambe Pueblo, New Mexico) and illustrated by Patrick Rolo (Bad River Band of Ojibwe, Wisconsin) and Lisa A. Fifield (Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin, Black Bear Clan), includes four books." (Book descriptions<http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/projects/ndwp/ebtoolkit/index.html>)

This is not an endorsement, be sure to use your selection development policy to determine whether or not these are appropriate for your collection and community.
