Children's LiteratureThe zippy alliterative title is indicative of the bouncy and busy tone of the text and illustration that follow. With the current emphasis on physical fitness and our need to get today's kids more active, this lively little number helps children understand how their bodies are composed and function. Well-diagramed illustrations of the bones, muscles, brain and nerves, lungs, heart and blood vessels, and stomach and intestines can be used with children as young as pre-school to help them grasp what goes on inside their bodies. The author stresses maintaining a healthy body and suggests several activities to strengthen, stretch, and tone the body. The neat thing about these activities they all involve games and sports kids like to play like soccer, sledding, roller skating, riding a bike, swimming, and just plain walking the dog. Watercolor illustration show happy, active children engaged in fun and invigorating exercise. Kids will peddle, push, twist, and turn themselves into better shape once someone has introduced this enthusiastic call to action to them. 2004, Crown, Ages 4 to 6.
