Overview

With childhood obesity reaching epidemic levels, this fun and appealing book about nutrition and fitness for kids is needed now more than ever.

Beginning with concise discussions of each of the food groups, along with the newly redesigned food pyramid, Ed Miller looks at all aspects of health and nutrition in this accessible and informative book. Fun facts about different foods are included throughout to keep the reading upbeat, and clear distinctions are made between healthy and not-so-healthy meal choices. Readers will learn how to develop healthy habits, such as making time for breakfast, tips for packing the best lunch, and the benefits of having a sit down (versus fast food) dinner. With Edward Miller's comprehensive writing and clear format, making healthy choices truly becomes easier.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The large square hardcover The Monster Health Book: A Guide to Eating Healthy, Being Active & Feeling Great for Monsters & Kids! by Edward Miller introduces readers to the basic rules for healthy eating and living-with a heavy dose of humor and alliterative tips (e.g., "Vary your veggies!"; "Focus on fruits!") Sidebars, highlighted advice and even jokes liven up the pages. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
With most of the book focused on some aspect of food, it is fitting that the table of contents is thrown all over a bag of groceries. Even though the text is too dense for most young readers, Miller presents his health information in a picture book format. Older readers who actually might understand the text will be turned off by the bright colors and flat illustrations that break up the dense paragraphs about health information. For example, the token monster who is the epitome of poor health—the only character that is obese and clumsy—is drawn in a computer-paint-bucket style. Even though this book claims that "it will help you make good food choices," few readers will refer to the book while "looking for something good to eat.helping in the kitchen.and at the supermarket." This book will be helpful to those who want nutrition information (even without an index, glossary, or sources). A list of Web sites for further information is included.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Featuring a friendly, rotund, green monster determined to make healthy choices, this book presents basic information about food, exercise, and health. Each topic is introduced in one or two paragraphs; additional facts appear in boxes, sidebars, lists, and diagrams. For example, the section on "The 5 Food Groups" contains interesting tidbits such as "During the Middle Ages, onions were so valuable that people paid their rent with them" and "It takes around 550 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter." Other subjects include food nutrients, counting calories and understanding food labels, tips for making healthy lunches and snacks, the benefits of getting enough sleep and exercise, and ways to improve self-esteem. Miller's retro-style illustrations fill the pages with color, shapes, and humorous details, and silly jokes are tucked everywhere. An impressive list of Web sites provides additional resources. This lively, visually appealing book about a critical but potentially dry subject belongs in children's hands.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Wasn't what I expected

    This book is full of useful information for kids, but it isn't easy for kids to read. It's almost too full of words and illustrations. When reading with my child, she almost can't figure where her eyes should go. I would have preferred a little less information -- or a few more pages.
