As you may know, May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, and this book makes a good tie-in. Here's the "official" synopsis:
When Sid decides to sit and watch television all weekend long, he learns that there is just one problem with his plan: sitting around and not moving would make his body feel terrible. At school Sid and his friends learn that exercising is a really fun way to stay healthy and it makes your body feel great!
I'm all for anything that tells kids to get a move on it and walk away from the TV, which I suppose is rather ironic coming from a book tie-in from a TV series. ;) As returning readers know, I'm a big fan of Henson company series, and my family loves and enjoys the Sid the Science Kid series. The book is pretty much just like the TV show, except it's interactive with you, the parent! (one can never read too many stories to their kids!) It's an over sized soft cover book that's lightweight and easy to take along for reading in the car or while waiting for appointments. The font is big enough for new readers to read (and easy for us older people to read! LOL!) It also has just the right "bite size" snippets of science that kids can understand and ask questions about - making it a good beginning for a family internet search or trip to the library in order to learn even more.
Sid the Science Kid: Everybody, Move Your Feet! retails for $5.99. (Find it on Amazon here)
