Reviews

"Even the youngest readers can learn to develop habits that guard their health and safety. This series presents ways to discover the importance of these topics and how to take action. Within the context of a story placed in familiar settings, the text showcases the problem, provides good ideas for overcoming it, and finishes with a happy conclusion. Additional facts appear regularly throughout the text, and cartoon-style illustrations fill the pages. At the end of each story, a simple experiment reinforces one of the main points. This series would be ideal supplemental reading for lessons on health, fitness, and safety." --Library Media Connection

"These books present tips for children about how to develop healthy and safe habits. Each story is told from the perspective of a child who is dealing with a specific issue (a picky eater who realizes that he needs to eat more healthy foods, a girl giving her brother advice on staying safe) and shows how he or she learns more about it with the help of friends and family. Though the first-person narratives, which flow easily and contain clear, direct language, are not conventional nonfiction in format, they still convey useful information. Eye-catching full-color illustrations match the text and aid comprehension, while red text boxes emphasize important points. An engaging series that deals with everyday problems kids may face." --School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
