Synopsis

Growing Strong A Book About Taking Care of Yourself by Christina Goodings

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, taking 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.

Reviews

Teaches in particular will find this excellent little book a useful teaching tool for increasing awareness of environmental issues.
