From Booklist:

Gr. 2-4. Miller, who illustrated Barbara Seuling's From Head to Toe (2002), contributes both words and pictures in another book about kids and their bodies, which focuses on healthy lifestyle choices. Opening spreads introduce the basic food groups, followed by pages about the day's early meals (breakfast, lunch, and snack), with menu suggestions for each. Later sections touch on physical and mental health: exercise, sleep, moods, and things to avoid (drugs and alcohol). The text is sometimes confusingly brief, and children will need adults to expand on such subjects as eating disorders and steroids, as well as on some sophisticated vocabulary (for example, "monounsaturated fat," which isn't defined). The jumbled format, with brief text boxes and bright pictures created from simple shapes, is cheerful, but it makes for a sometimes confusing, disjointed presentation. Even so, the goofy, lime green monster, shown learning alongside his young human friends, will draw some interest, and in an age of childhood obesity, this overview offers teachers and parents useful passages to start discussions about healthy habits.
