Format: Paperback
In a nutshell, parents who enjoy the benefits of the paleo diet (also known as the caveman diet) that consists of eating organic meats and seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and nuts while avoiding sugar, dairy, legumes, grains, and refined and processed foods, will like this book as a way to make the lifestyle appealing to their children.

The story centers around Jimmy, who doesn't want to eat healthy food until he meets the Paleo Pals and embarks on an adventure in their carrot rocket ship, during which he learns why some ingredients in processed foods are bad for him (high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, etc.) and why organically grown fresh, whole foods like vegetables and fruit are good.

Readers need to be aware that it is promoting a specific diet and one thing I didn't care for (even though I do agree with the benefits of the paleo way of eating) is that the book presents people who don't adopt this lifestyle in such a negative way. The food processing plant is presented as evil as it spews a black cloud of pollution into the air. The Paleo Pals take Jimmy to a playground where kids who don't eat "paleo" are depicted as lethargic, sick, sad, unable to do well at anything, and are even aggressive and angry while those who do eat "paleo" are kind, energetic, successful, and happy as if eating paleo is the only factor that makes a child nice or not; successful or not.

While it does make a point about the effects processed foods and chemicals they contain can have on children, it seemed preachy, especially for a children's book since children tend to take things literally when presented with that kind of information.

Format: Paperback
Paleo Pals is such a wonderful book that highlights why eating healthy and living a paleo lifestyle is beneficial. The book is about a young boy named jimmy who is not sure that eating healthy is cool or important and involves 3 super hero's, the Paleo Pals who come in and teach Jimmy about the benefits of the Paleo lifestyle. My kids read the book at ages 4 and 9 and loved it; they were excited about the characters (I mean what kid doesn't like a super hero or carrot rocket ship?) and learned about how essential it is to eat good food. They wanted to go to the farmers market immediately to help pick out food to eat! I was impressed with how easy it was for both of my kids to follow the story and understand what was going on. I highly recommend this book! It's colorful, educational and just a wonderful story!

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Katie on February 7, 2012
Format: Paperback
My kids enjoyed this book and it helped them understand why we choose to eat the way that we do. While we don't usually call the way we eat "Paleo" we do focus on meats, lots of veggies and fruits, and healthy fats, so the message was similar. They asked me if a "Paleo" diet was a "Healthy" diet and it gave me a chance to explain healthy eating choices in a way that they understood at their age. While I've always been very open with them about what foods are healthy and which ones aren't, they seemed even more enthusiastic about healthy eating now that the message had come from superheros. They've been careful to ask me if foods are healthy or not, and have enjoyed helping prepare foods. There are some great kid-friendly recipes in the back of the book, along with instructions for how to include the kids in food prep. If you have switched to a healthier, Paleo type way of eating and your kids are struggling with it, this book will help them understand why food choices are important.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my family, being that we are gluten free and paleo is an interesting next step in my mind for us. I love the concept of the book. I find it too long and wordy though but perhaps better for kids older than my 6 yr old (3 yr old obviously a bit young for it for sure). We read books in bed and this one is heavy to hold up and awkward in it's landscape layout. Maybe if the story were told simpler, we would read it again, but I inwardly grown if they go to pull it out. - they lose interest now after a few pages of me going on and on. Great information for adults and older children I think. I hate to even put a review that isn't wonderful up since I want to be supportive of this topic and author. But it is what it is. A GREAT resource for people on a Paleo diet or those considering it. Makes it seem simple to go down that road, and I appreciate that.

Format: Paperback
With her first book Everyday Paleo, Sarah Fragoso showed how beneficial it can be to transition your family from the standard American diet to the paleo way of life. With Paleo Pals, she's created a fun set of characters to help your kids really get on board with this new way of eating (and life). The story is fun enough to keep wee ones engaged and the bright illustrations make it accessible to little ones who aren't ready to read words for themselves yet. It's got a beautiful family vibe and excitement -- kids won't even realize they're learning. The story is bolstered by a few easy- and fun-to-make recipes to encourage kids to join you in the kitchen. Plus, who doesn't love a new set of superheroes?!
