Healthy Resolutions- And Wonderful Books!
With every new year there are new resolutions! One of the resolutions that everyone can have, regardless of age or situation is to become a healthier you. We all have our weak moments, (Dairy Queen Chocolate Explosion anyone?) but the key to living a healthy life is balancing our habits and having a healthy mindset. So in honor of our resolutions, I wanted to offer some fun children's books encouraging healthy decisions!
The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food
by: Stan Berenstain, Jan Berenstain
Summary: When Mama Bear notices her two cubs getting a little chubby, she decides to curtail their junk-food habits. An excellent job of covering basic nutrition principles, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and the role exercise plays in good health. Preschool to age 8. I LOVE THIS BOOK! As well as every other Berenstain Bears book.
by: Joanna Cole
Summary: Ms. Frizzle shepherds her reluctant students through the human body in a book that is as fancifully conceived as it is educational. Ages 6-9. If you haven't delved into the wonderful world of Ms. Frizzle's classroom and the adventures in her magic school bus, then hurry into the nearest library and introduce your family to them! They are fabulous!
Try to couple these great books with a play date, or even a healthy meal cooked with your child!
