Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Homework, the big game, speaking in front of the class...these can be stressful events. Using a variety of analogies about what causes frustration or stress, the author does an excellent job keeping this topic germane to the reader. Discovering that some levels of frustration, fear and anxiety are a normal part of life is helpful to children. Suggesting children talk to adults about how to funnel anger or to use exercise and laughter as a way or relieving anxiety are excellent strategies. Just the right amount of terms are introduced for this age level. One sidebar digresses into autism and lectures students not to make fun of children with autism. Empathy towards others is always important, however, not only does this sidebar seem off-topic, rather than being enlightening, the admonishment not to tease insults the reader. Later in the book the author, again, censures the reader about teasing. Perhaps there is a better way to approach the discussion of empathy toward others, this lecturing, motherly tone is a sour note in an otherwise well-written book. A short glossary, question-and-answer section and fact list provide additional information. The layout is easy-on-the-eye. The book includes many interesting photographs of younger children of various ethnicities. Though the publisher suggests this book is for students as old as 13, the language level, tone and the photographs (representing mostly younger children) may not appeal to 12- and 13-year-olds. Overall, however, this is an excellent book to help students understand some of their emotions. It would be helpful for student reports or for teachers or parents to introducing health topics. Part of the "Living Well Series." 2004, TheChild's World, Ages 8 to 13.

Gr 2-4-Acceptable introductory treatments. Eating focuses on the food pyramid, explaining good nutrition and its effect on health, with the role of vitamins highlighted. Exercising explains strength, flexibility, and endurance, and encourages daily activity to promote well-being, avoid obesity, and deal with stress. Some basic nutrition is included. Mental Health introduces the role of the brain in emotions and looks specifically at worry and stress. Overall physical health is pinpointed as key to enjoying good mental health, and the roles of proper nutrition and adequate physical activity are emphasized. Each book kicks off with a vignette. WNBA player Nikki McCray is featured in Exercising; the stories in the other titles appear to be fictitious. Bright, bold photographs appear throughout, and the captions are generally informative. A couple of exceptions mar Eating. For example, the caption for photos of movie-theater popcorn and jelly beans reads, "Pay attention to the serving size. Instead of a big bag of popcorn, choose a handful of jelly beans!" Whether a big dose of sugar is really a better nutritional choice than fat and salt is debatable. Jillian Powell's Exercise and Your Health (Raintree, 1998) includes more specific information. Janan Cain's The Way I Feel (Parenting, 2000) is an inviting picture book that helps children to accept what they are feeling as normal. Loreen Leedy's The Edible Pyramid (Holiday, 1994) takes a witty narrative approach.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
