This makes a great group read and from experience I can tell you that it can lead to many good discussions with the little ones as to the importance of exercise and activity. I can most certainly recommend the addition of this one to your child's library or to any school and classroom library.
Steven Ettinger has produced a book that is sorely needed but presents it in a fun and engaging format. Parents should include this book in their children's library. It makes exercising fun for kids and their families. Highly recommended.
Full color illustrations and kid-friendly rhymes guide young readers through a day in the life of an extremely lazy dog named Wallie. However, this is no ordinary day, and as it progresses, Wallie gradually becomes aware that exercise does not always mean hard labor.
Otherwise, a good effort at reaching the generation who would much rather play video games than go outdoors. This is a cute illustrated book designed to get kids thinking about exercising, and to give parents ideas for facilitating exercise-promoting activities.
