Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What a switch; the one who is in great shape is grandma. She is fast and strong. Why is that? The text posits that she became fit when she grew up because they did not have television so she did a lot of other things including walking to school. Also at school kids played more sports and they worked at home helping around the house. She encourages her grandchildren to get off the couch and start doing things like climbing trees, playing games, working around the house and fun activities like swimming. The kids are surprised that they sleep so well after a day of activity and are full of energy when they wake up. The lessons are pretty obvious, but most kids don't control the schedule at school so even if they might want an active recess period it is really up to the school administrators. On weekends, the family has more control and they can undertake activities such as hiking, walking and bicycle riding. The book concludes with "Notes for Parents and Teachers." The note summarizes the story and points out what the message is. This title and others in the "Looking After Me" series meet K-4 health education standards in Canada and the United States.
