Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the spirit and style of the Cat in the Hat books of Dr. Seuss, this book introduces young readers to some basic elements of good personal health care. Part of a series of books called "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library," this book, in Seussian rhyme and silliness, informs readers about the need for good nutrition, exercise, sleep and hand washing. In the "Feeling Great Clinic in Far-off Fadoo," readers meet fanciful creatures like Snuff Gruffles, Snug Buggles and the Galactic Garoo, who teach them strategies for keeping themselves fit and healthy. Young children will enjoy the sugar coating and their adult reading partners will appreciate the message that comes along with it. There is even a glossary, index and guide for further reading for serious information seekers. 2001, Random House, $11.99 and $7.99. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Judy Katsh
