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


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.


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

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
