Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
From the first page that pictures a young person drinking bottled water 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 drinking water from a water fountain, on the playing field, and at home during family meals. Families are shown caring for each other during play by being sure to get enough water. Fathers and sons remind the reader to get plenty of water when their body is sick, so that it can work its best. The text is simple and easy to read. A glossary, index, and helpful Internet pages are included. Multicultural images are presented throughout the text. Although all of the titles in this series fulfill their mission of presenting healthy ideas, this title is the weakest in the series. The language seems strained. There is very little variation on the theme "drink plenty of water." 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.
—Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Perhaps best suited for classroom libraries, these books foster body and health awareness. Bright, full-page color photographs show children of various ethnicities demonstrating the concepts suggested in the texts. Sentences are simple, with plenty of repetition. Nonreaders will be able to get the messages from the pictures, which feature sound forms of exercise, show when to drink water, and depict nutritious snacks. Although a picture in Active shows a boy riding a bike that is too big for him, most of the photos are engaging and realistic. These titles promote the MyPyramid government Web site and suggest FactHound as a safe source for links to additional information.-Janet S. Thompson, Chicago Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
