Children's Literature - Heather Robertson Mason
At one time in our history, people's lives were so full of activity the idea of exercise for the sake of exercise would have seemed ridiculous. However, now much of our lives are spent sitting, even while we are at work. This book, one of the "Kids & Obesity" series, attempts to educate kids on the importance of lifestyle choices to overall health. It tackles topics such as the dangers of obesity, the benefits of exercise and sports, and ideas for building more activity into day to day life. The author strives to showcase ways to be active that are within a child's reach, such as swimming or walking the dog. In addition to an index, there is also a list of extra print and Internet resources. This book is one of the better texts from an otherwise weak series. It is written in a tone appropriate to the age targeted and provides information that readers can apply immediately, especially the section on creating an exercise plan. However, it does contain some errors common to these books including word for word repetition of information from other books in the series and strange choices in sidebar graphics and topics. All and all, it's an okay book...but just okay. Reviewer: Heather Robertson Mason
