This attractive book will be appreciated for its warm exploration of a perennially important theme.
This look-and-learn book consists of colourful pictures of children doing the things that underpin a healthy lifestyle - staying clean, exercising and eating well - along with brief captions and thoughts which provide useful discussion starter points, for use either by a parent or teacher sharing the book with a child or class, or for a child to reflect on as they browse the book individually.
The whole concept conveys a simple message about healthy living and the importance of looking after ourselves and each other.
