Illustrations are colorful and interesting - just what the little ones look for in a book. My grandson always looks for this book in my house.
This is, I believe a must for all parents of young children (together with the children) as it will remind them of the importance of eating the proper foods.
Grammar schools should also use this in their health classes.
More books like this PLEASE....... Maybe this is the way to a slimmer youth.
I would agree that this book won't win any literary awards. However, for me the most important critic of this book is my son. And he loved it! He's asked that I read it over and over again. And most importantly, he's taken a keen interest in eating healthy.
My understanding is that "The Race Against Junk Food" is supposed to be a MOTIVATIONAL book. There is plenty of "how to" books about what our children should eat. And still up to 1/3 of our kids are obese. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that we should all eat lots of fruits and vegetables. My issue is getting my son to want to eat healthy.
I would respectively suggest that from my son's point of view this book is like the movie that the critic pans and everyone else loves.
SNAK Posse, feed us more!
The story is fun and not preachy at all and it's good to see my child with good eating habits on his mind. What more can I ask for?
