My Amazing Body: A First Look At Health And Fitness ("A First Look At..." Series)

Many aspects of health and physical fitness are explained in a way that younger children can readily understand. This lively picture book explores the importance of a good diet and plenty of exercise, and encourages kids to make positive decisions about caring for themselves. Kids discover that even healthy people get ill sometimes, but that our bodies have special abilities to protect us and restore our health. Titles in this series for younger children explore emotional issues that boys and girls encounter as part of the growing-up process. Books are focused to appeal to kids of preschool through early school age. Written by psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas, A First Look At books promote positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers, and encourage kids to ask questions and confront social and emotional questions that sometimes present problems. Books feature appealing full-color illustrations on every page plus a page of advice to parents and teachers.

I bought this book for my son's kindergarten class, and it was a hit! The messages are clear and interesting. At this age, their minds are like sponges, soaking up information, but can become saturated if too much. The illustrations were also very appropriate and underscored the theme of the book. Overall, this book struck a perfect balance for the 4 to 6 age group - not too wordy, great illustrations, definitely not babyish in development of theme.

Great book that my toddlers love reading. It briefly mentions the 5 senses, exercise, eating healthy, eating junk food, getting hurt, getting sick, cleanliness, sleeping and physical activity. It allows for discussion and elaboration, which is great and enjoyable especially with all of the colorful images.

Brought this for a boys and girls club to give to children to teach them about health and their bodies. They were happy.

Love the book! Talks about the wonderful our bodies do and how to keep it healthy! Perfect for preschool aged children!
