Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of seven in the "Food is CATegorical" series, the author uses Seuss-like rhymes and cartoonish cat characters to explain the cereal group in the food pyramid and encourages wise choices within it. The text covers amounts, types and names of many of the kinds of foods within the group pushing consumption of whole grains and their benefits. The rhymes and illustrations lend a humorous note that youngsters seem to enjoy, but there is really some good information here. With childhood obesity on the rise, youngsters need to be more aware of what goes into their mouths and what it does to their bodies. There is a mini exercise at the end of the book for calculating amounts eaten as well as an illustration of the USDA Food Pyramid and online resources for further study. It's seriously funny business. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
