Booklist - 04/01/2018 Sitting is the new smoking: getting Americans moving is a public health priority. This introduction to adopting an active lifestyle offers a two-pronged approach. One narrative aligns closely with the charming digital illustrations, which feature a diverse group of young kids preparing for a swim meet: stretching, practicing, goofing around, eating healthy, having a group hug, and competing with no final results shown, just the satisfaction of having done their best. A second narrative appears below the first, in bold font, and offers more sophisticated insights that complement the main text. For example, on the page mentioning the group hug, the added material advises talking to an adult when feeling anxious or sad. This dual treatment makes for a great read-aloud for younger audiences and then easily extends into curriculum support for elementary health units. Other pages discuss proper equipment, hand washing, and body, mind, and brain connections. Cute pictures, an engaging story, and lots of facts. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
