Growing Strong: A Book About Taking Care of Yourself ISBN: 9780745961583
Furukawa, Masumi and Goodings, Christina
Published by Lion Hudson Plc, 2009
A beautifully produced hardback book, written in conversational style, about all the things one can do to keep healthy and make one's body grow properly. Sections on food as fuel and the different food groups, on keeping clean (teeth as well as body), on exercise and taking risks, on proper clothing for the weather, on first aid, and on sleep. The illustrations are simple and delicate, with text interspersed, and the theme is a positive approach to learning to take care of oneself.
