Healthy Choices, Happy Kids - book review

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Here is the today's book quote for you to guess both the author and the book:

                       "These two very old people are the father and mother of Mr. Bucket."

Today's featured book is....

Title:  Healthy Choices, Happy Kids: 
Making Good Choices with Every Day Care

Authors: Foster W. Cline, M.D., Lisa C. Greene and Gina L. May
Illustrator:  Dona Vajgand

What's in this book?

I think you will find this book very beneficial to the overall choices that your child makes concerning her health and the consequences if the choices are not good.  Every child when left to make decisions on her own regarding eating the right foods, when and how to brush her teeth, the importance of hand washing, the receiving of medicine if she is sick (usually depending on the taste), the desire to take a bath or shower or even putting down the electronic games and getting outside for fresh air and exercise needs to know the consequences of those decisions.  This picture book was penned to give caregivers a guide and a means of encouragement to help their child understand what may happen if you do not make good choices regarding your overall well being.  The illustrations are fun and kid-friendly making the reader identify with the characters and engage in the truth of the book's message.   Included in the book is a hidden frog on each page which makes the book a fun and interactive read.  Our  children's health is very important and we, as adults, want to give them tools to be empowered and to look after themselves starting from a very early age so they can live a long, wholesome life and be the best that they can be.
