Establishing patterns of a healthy diet, exercise, and sleep helps children stay physically active, make friends, learn well, and enjoy emotional health—all of which lead to greater happiness. Children’s health and confidence can increase as they become more aware of their own unique bodies and abilities, and as they incorporate the self-care principles presented in this warm and encouraging book. A section for adults includes advice for motivating kids and teaching about being healthy at home, at school, and in childcare.

Being the Best Me!® Series
From the author of the popular Learning to Get Along® series comes a one-of-a-kind character development series that helps children learn, understand, and develop attitudes and character traits that strengthen self-confidence and a sense of purpose. Each book focuses on a specific attitude or character trait and includes discussion questions, activities, and additional information adults can use to reinforce the concepts with children. Filled with diversity, these read-aloud books will be welcome in all settings.
