Children's LiteratureAnything that inspires the average American kid to become more active is a valuable resource. Being healthy means more than just not being sick. Being healthy requires good food, rest and plenty of water. Being healthy helps you feel good about yourself. About one-third of all young people do not get enough physical activity. Even 15 minutes a day of vigorous activity a day can make a big difference. A fitness test is included for a simple assessment. Being more active takes motivation. It helps to find activities that are enjoyable. To be truly fit, it is important to participate in three kinds of activities, cardiovascular exercise for the heart, flexibility exercises and muscle building activities. Assistance is provided in developing a routine, information about warming up, cooling down and safety. Numerous large photos of middle-school age students will make kids that age feel at home. This book is part of the "KidPower Healthy Lifestyles for Kids" series. 2003, Crabtree Publishing, Ages 8 to 14.
