Stover is an interesting book written by Kathy Brodsky. For starters it stars a pig who goes by the name Stover. Stover is not a big fat pig, but features a pig who is trying to eat better, stay fit and in general be a little healthier. I think a very interesting point in the book is when the main character is happy with not seeing an real difference in the way she looks. This is a very realistic interpretation of what happens when working out for the first, even up to the third-forth week of working out. Any difference will be slow and steady, but well worth it. Most exercises for kids books would show a dramatic change quickly, but is unrealistic and when kids actually do try to be healthy they expect fast change right now! (and reminds us of the same- and helps kid understand healthy eating habits and the importance of being active.) Thanks, Stover for showing kids how to live healthy by eating right and exercising , not crash dieting.
AND- good thoughts for the kids, and good reinforcement if you are (like me) trying to be healthier, and improve your life and the life of your family
