School Library Journal - 04/01/2018 K-Gr 2—Children are never too young to learn good habits for healthy living. This visually robust resource is designed for early elementary schoolers, including both the very young and emerging readers. The benefits of practices such as diet and exercise, personal hygiene and preventive medical care, are covered in clear, age-appropriate language, with new vocabulary defined in photo glossaries at the end of each book. Healthy Foods provides a schematic of beneficial food groups; Exercise, Dentist, Doctor, and Hospital each cover objects relevant to their respective settings; and Keep Clean provides a useful visual on proper handwashing techniques. High-quality photographs feature diverse groups of people engaged in a variety of gender-neutral roles. VERDICT An impressive introductory resource to encourage healthy practices among children. - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
