Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
From the table of contents page that pictures a caterpillar made from cherry tomatoes, cheese, crackers, and Cheerios, to the introduction of the My Pyramid site provided by the government, this title encourages young readers to be healthy. Photographs throughout the book show young readers making healthy choices: Children can be seen on the playground and in the classroom sharing healthy snacks. Families are shown shopping together, making healthy choices of dried fruits and nuts. This is the only volume in the series that uses a grandparent figure, sharing healthy snacks with grandchildren. The text is simple and easy to read. A glossary, index, and helpful Internet pages are included. A list of ways to include healthy snacks in your daily diet is included in the help pages. Throughout the text, children are reminded to make healthy choices. Even when children are shown sitting and watching television, they are eating popcorn, not pizza or candy. Multicultural images are presented throughout the text. Other titles in the "Healthy Eating with My Pyramid" series cover fruits, water, grains, snacks, exercise, vegetables, and meat. This is an excellent introduction to healthy lifestyles for all early elementary school students. This would be a good choice for elementary science classrooms, supporting the national science standards for nutrition and health. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Perhaps best suited for classroom libraries, these books foster body and health awareness. Bright, full-page color photographs show children of various ethnicities demonstrating the concepts suggested in the texts. Sentences are simple, with plenty of repetition. Nonreaders will be able to get the messages from the pictures, which feature sound forms of exercise, show when to drink water, and depict nutritious snacks. Although a picture in Active shows a boy riding a bike that is too big for him, most of the photos are engaging and realistic. These titles promote the MyPyramid government Web site and suggest FactHound as a safe source for links to additional information.-Janet S. Thompson, Chicago Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
