Format: Paperback
Who can use this book?
•Young readers who are learning their action words and numbers.
•Parents who want their kids to be active as well as active readers.
•Teachers who want their students to warm up their bodies as they practice following directions.
Joey is a fun character who takes a few steps in keeping active. He shares what he knows with young readers. The illustrations are also good as they show the actions that help kids move more. I could read one action at a time or the whole book. Kids will enjoy reading it over and over. I certainly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book has a colorful photo on one page and a story with activities for your kids to do on the other. "Joey The Kangaroo" would be geared towards kids who may struggle with longer exercise and who are younger. At the end of the book there is an information section on each of the exercises your kids did and how to help them/encourage them to do well. And on a side note the book helps the kids to count to 10 with 10 different exercises. Love that fitness and learning are combined.

As a health author, I too, team up with animals to help inform kids (of all ages) to get the message. The author of this book is awesome and has a gift to relate info in a reader-friendly way.

Format: Paperback
Cute book. If it weren't for my job I would probably give this book 5 stars because I really like that Len Saunders is incorporating exercise into his books. This book would be great for most children... However, I have students in my classroom with physical disabilities (in wheelchairs, using walkers, etc.) so I could not use this book in its entirety with my students. I could not read the words "Standing on both feet is easy to do" when I have students who struggle with standing or who will never be able to.
