Eagle Books for Youth

Mysteries and diabetes are not typical plot points for children’s books and young adult novels. But through the illustrated Eagle Books series, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention bring health and mystery into everyday conversations for the series' characters. As the children grow up, so does the series, extending the brief but vivid tales of the children’s books into an overarching young adult series. Throughout, characters like Mr. Eagle teach the characters the importance of traditional ways and nutrition while the clever trickster Coyote tries to trip them up.
