Adriana Cerrotti's Off the Couch! is a story that encourages children to make healthy food choices, turn off the television, and become more physically active. As a wellness and fitness professional, I applaud Adriana for using her platform as an illustrator-turned-author to stress the importance of healthy living. Adriana is a very talented cartoon animator as evidenced by the vibrant and humorous illustrations she created for her story. She does a good job of depicting the unlikely friendship between her main characters (a cat and a mouse) and their quest for fitness by eating better and skateboarding. Growing up, I remember how much fun I had riding skateboards with my brothers and sisters, so this added a bit of nostalgia for me. Some of the word choices may present challenges to younger readers, but the overall message is a positive one: stay away from junk food, find a physical activity that you like, and Get Off the Couch!

This book has a good message about eating healthy, but its lacking the normal rhythm that you usually experience with books of this type. It would not be my choice for a read aloud to a group, but might be beneficial when trying to share the message that the choices you make with the foods you eat can impact how you feel and how much energy you have to play.
