Children's Literature
Apples, carrots, chicken, milk, and whole grains: Are these part of your child's daily diet? If not this fun-to-read, informational book can help your child learn to make healthy eating choices each and every day. As part of a series called "Pull Ahead Books," the text and pictures feature good food choices alongside young vibrant children eating and playing on each page. The "Did You Know" section gives teachers, librarians, and parents excellent cue-setting opportunities when presenting lessons about healthy habits, exercise, and diet. Pull together a table of real food items, browse the suggested Internet links, and start teaching today to help children understand how to fuel their bodies and live active lives. 2006 (orig. 1971), Lerner Publications Company, Ages 5 to 8.

K-Gr 3-Eating Well helps youngsters learn how to choose and maintain a healthy diet by following the USDA's MyPyramid . Mitchell covers each food group and what it does for the body, such as grains providing energy and the milk group helping to make bones strong. The text also addresses the proper quantities to consume each day. In Working with Others, Nelson explains that everyone gets angry but that it is important to know how to resolve conflicts, such as using respectful words, listening to the opinions of others, apologizing, and talking things through. The concept of compromise is also introduced. Both books have full-color photos on every page. Useful and informative additions.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
