From the Inside Flap
Your amazing body can jump, sprint, twist, and twirl. Your body is built to move.
Lizzy Rockwell explains how your bones and muscles, heart and lungs, nerves and brain all work together to keep you on the go. Kids walk and skate and tumble through these pages with such exuberance that even sprouting couch potatoes will want to get up and bounce around--and that's the ultimate goal. Studies show that American kids are becoming more sedentary and more overweight and that they carry these tendencies with them into adolescence and adulthood. Experts agree that we need to help kids make physical activity a life-long habit. Through education, information, and encouragement, this book aims to inspire a new generation of busy bodies! --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

So I have to ask, what in the heck was the author thinking by having the kid sitting on the bench with his headphones on eating a bag of CHIPS on not 1, but 3 pages in the book. Seriously? I was hoping there would be some kind of statement made on how that wasn't a great choice (and it does later touch on good nutrition) but it never does go back and point out the poor choice.
Otherwise this would be a 5 star rating. Still good, but not great.
As a former teacher I also appreciate the inclusion of diagrams throughout the book. Well labeled diagrams of the systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, circulatory and digestive) enhance the main content of the book. The earlier kids get accustomed to reading diagrams, the stronger their reading comprehension skills will be - think about how often we have to read diagrams in our daily lives.
The Busy Body Book is a fun resource for teachers to use in their classrooms for units about the body and for lessons about how to read diagrams. Families will enjoy sharing the book before heading outdoors for a physical adventure.
