What Reviewers Say...

School Library Journal (Nov. 2014) This series encourages kids to take control of their eating, exercise, germs, and hygiene—and does so with a rare and refreshing burst of humor. Attractively designed and featuring diverse children, each book includes "Try This," "Did You Know?" and "Just Joking!" sidebars that will pique students' interest. Self-assessment quizzes at the end make this series a home run.
