Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
From the table of contents page that pictures a snowman made from whole grain crackers, Cheerios, and berries, 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 munching on whole grain crackers. Families are shown exploring the way grain grows by visiting wheat farms together. Fathers and sons explore the government Web site. Kids are shown having fun together while helping to prepare meals using whole grain products. The text is simple and easy to read. A glossary, index, and helpful Internet pages are included. A list of ways to get more grains into your daily diet is included in the end pages. Throughout the text, children are reminded to eat more whole grains. Multicultural images are presented throughout the text. 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.
