Children's LiteratureFrom the table of contents page that pictures a football and a volleyball player with a hat made from a baseball glove, to the introduction of the My Pyramid site provided by the government, this title encourages young readers to be healthy. Photographs throughout the book show young readers making healthy choices: Children can be seen swimming, skiing, and playing ball. Families are shown biking together, all wearing the appropriate helmets. Fathers and sons play basketball. Kids are shown taking care of the family pet, and just having fun together. The text is simple and easy to read. A glossary, index, and helpful Internet pages are included. A list of ways to be active is included in the end pages. Throughout the text, children are reminded to move more and sit less. Multicultural images are presented throughout the text. Other titles in the "Healthy Eating with My Pyramid" series cover fruits, water, grains, snacks, exercise, vegetables, and meat. This is an excellent introduction to healthy lifestyles for all early elementary school students. This would be a good choice for elementary science classrooms, supporting the national science standards for nutrition and health. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 6.
