Grocery Shopping: It's in the Bag

Grocery Shopping: It's in the Bag

by Slim Goodbody, John Burstein

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
This book is part of the "Slim Goodbody's Lighten Up Series," which also includes books about advertising tricks, fast food, reading nutrition labels, and other topics of pertinence to teens. The books in this series contain an easy to read typeface and slick graphics by Adventure Advertising, 32 pages, with glossary, index, and web resources. 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 is designed to teach kids to shop smartly and make good grocery choices, choosing "healthy" (why can they not use the word "healthful"?) foods, setting good goals, and using the food pyramid to guide food buying. 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
