Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
This books is part of the "Slim Goodbody's Lighten Up Series," which also includes books on advertising tricks, fast food, reading nutrition labels, and other topics of pertinence to teens. The books all contain an easy to read typeface and slick graphics by Adventure Advertising, 32 pages, with glossary, index, and web resources listed. In each book, a fictional narrator carries the burden of introducing concepts and covering the material, with plenty of dialogue to make the reading easy-breezy. This volume contains information on fast food, choosing more healthful side dishes and skipping fat and salt loaded sauces, selecting smaller portions, reading nutritional labels with extensive examples, various fast food drinks and their sugar/fat/carb loads, being a health advocate, and exercising off the consequences of fast food lifestyles. Some pages feature a sidebar by Slim Goodbody,which is actually at the bottom of the page, passing along even more information to the reader. Illustrations are aimed at teens, tweens, and older readers. The books might be helpful in a health or life-skills class learning about nutrition context. Evidently there are also videos and DVDs galore to supplement most titles in print. Slim Goodbody seems to have held up remarkably well through the past thirty years in his multimedia "Bodyology" shows. Reviewer: Gwynne Spencer
