Reviews

K-Gr 4-- A liberal mix of humorous dinosaurs and lively text create a unique treatment in health education. A regular dose of the Browns' lovable creatures is sure to become the enticement to a better and more healthful life. The smooth style of writing develops the theme across a broad span of coverage, giving information and advice about nutrition, cleanliness, illness, the value of exercise, and how to handle stress (child oriented!). Frequent exposure to this book will help children realize the ultimate goal--that of staying healthyand feeling good about themselves. An upbeat mood pervades this nonpatronizing treatment of an otherwise ``doesn't-everybody-know-that'' subject. The exuberant watercolor illustrations make the book a complete success. Teachers will find it invaluable for classroom collections, and librarians should consider multiple copies. There are no others like it! --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH

With the same zany humor and straightforward approach demonstrated in Dinosaurs Beware! et al., the Browns have created another refreshing book to help youngsters learn about caring for themselves. Anthropomorphic alligators tell (and show) children how to exercise both their minds and their bodies; what foods are good for them to eat; how to deal with and--positively--express their feelings; the ways in which they can be a good friend; and the necessity of taking some quiet-time for themselves. Cartoonlike captions reinforce and expand the text, and the clever integration of words and illustrations enhances the accessibility of the concepts being introduced. Positive, upbeat and direct, this is a book that both children and their parents will enjoy. Ages 4-8. (May)
