This new book by Ed Koch and Pat Koch Thaler really passed a tough test. Our grandchildren, ages 13,9,7,5 and 3,three boys and two girls,were all captivated and entertained by this honest and entertaining new book on a topic they all hear a great deal about from their parents,grandparents,teaches and other adults. Without sermonizing or being very inflexible,the authors show thst Eddie learns from his own peers (another lesson here is how to be a good friend) how to stay healthy and more fit,making diet and excerise changes little by little. Eddie finds out that one slice of pizza instead of two, and a cookie as a sometimes treat is ok too.Best of all, excerise seems to give him more energy. Before long he doesn't dread recess time in school, he can play ball and run faster, and the other kids stop calling him "slowpoke". Kids of all ages will love this "easy to digest" message,the wonderful illustrations and the frank approach of this uniquely told tale.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
