Summary
Compiled with the assistance of an advisory team comprised of a child psychologist, dietitian, fitness instructor, and pediatrician, this four-volume series has been conceived to appeal to both boys and girls by virtue of its tremendous visual impact and easy-to-follow text. This series covers not only vital aspects of physical health, but also emotional well-being. Questions posed at intervals throughout the text ensure that the reader is understanding important aspects of the information presented. Actual examples of young people who have found themselves with certain health problems, or who are in turmoil for some reason, are provided as a highly effective way of introducing the reader to the subject matter of each self-contained spread.

This title explains how physical activity helps you both feel and look good, and presents exercises that can be done both individually and in groups. Some of the exercises are isometric and can be done sitting in a chair, making them useful for individuals with disabilities. Other sequences can be done to music, or take the form of yoga especially adapted for this age group.
