Book Description

"A fun little book that children and dog lovers alike will get a kick out of." -Red City Review

Simon is a long-haired dachshund who loves to eat cheese and hates to exercise. Susie tries to feed him diet dog food, but Simon hates it! When Susie goes to summer camp, Simon stays with Susie’s friend, Annie. Simon fools Annie into feeding him lots of cheese and letting him take naps instead of walks. But one day, Simon wakes up and finds his tummy gone! There is a furry beach ball where his tummy used to be.

How will Simon find his tummy?

In SIMON LOSES HIS TUMMY, the humorous and gentle message of the importance of eating healthy foods and exercise will appeal to young children as well as their parents.

Nice approach to encouraging exercise and better eating habits for kids, using man's best friend (dog). Cute illustrations and a funny easygoing story line will keep the kids interested! Try it, you'll like it!

Very cute story. My only complaint is that I would love to see more illustrations. Maybe there could be more in a book edition?

5.0 out of 5 stars Simon Loses His Tummy February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is a very clever approach to childhood obesity which is a serious concern in pediatrics. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It is a great resource for parents, physicians and teachers addressing this issue with children. I plan to recommend it to parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should get the No Belly Prize! January 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful story that everyone should read especially children of all ages, parents, grandparents and all pet owners....a cute and accurate manual on how to influence a loved one to be healthy, and how to overcome resistances. It is a great lesson for young and old alike. And it is a scientific tale told by one of the world's leading experts, MIT's Dr. Judith Wurtman on diet and the consequence to humans and animals of eating the wrong foods. I have been following the teachings of Dr. Wurtman for over 18 years and have the utmost respect for her work. William K. Joseph New York City

Children will laugh, perhaps knowingly, at the antics of Simon, an endearing and wily dachshund
(Is there any other kind?) as he comes to grips with waistline issues. Friends and a kindly vet are his gentle and sensitive guides to the adoption and appreciation of a good diet and exercise.
The chapter book format and illustrations make it ideal for storytelling and independent reading.
