This series provides an excellent introduction to the new Food Guide Pyramid and its components with engaging text, clear and colorful charts, and absolutely delicious looking photographs. Healthy Eating provides an overview of all the food groups as well as the importance of exercise. The individual volumes on specific food groups include examples of how much of that type food a child should have each day (with pictures of how much that would be). The series offers early readers more challenge with varied sentence structures, more text, and less repetition. Each volume concludes with instructions on using www.factsurfer.com (a link to age appropriate pre-selected Web sites). These are excellent resources for standards-based units, projects, or research. They also can be used with English as a second language learners or reluctant readers, making them an appealing way to help children make good choices about food and exercise! Bibliography. Glossary. Index. Highly Recommended.
