A Boy Named Boo by Jr. Luis Trikz Da Silva is a good story for children with a positive concept and message. Louie is a little heavy in weight, hence he does not do well in sports. The kids at school make jokes about him and laugh at him. Louie, who is also called Boo, feels embarrassed and sad, and wants to get better, feel better, and play sports. His doctor recommends that he play outside instead of sitting at home and watching TV; and that he should eat healthy food instead of junk snacks all the time. Boo listened to the doctor and started to eat fruits and vegetables. He also started playing outside. Will he be able to reduce his weight, be healthy, and have fun?

The book discusses child obesity and low self-esteem, and motivates young readers to overcome their personal issues after reading about Boo. The illustrations are vivid and lively, and they not only give a good pace and movement to the story, but also make the characters and scenes come alive. It's a good bedtime story book for children, and parents and grandparents will find it helpful in educating their kids and grandkids with weight related issues. The book can also be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries.

This kind of book is good for children as it helps them to understand the concept and message better when narrated with the help of a story and illustrations. Parents and children will be able to identify with the problem faced by Boo, and parents can help their children handle the problem wisely.
