Review:

Scholars of education and physical education, most at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, and the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, make a case for integrating health literacy in schools as a priority in public health. They cover what health literacy is and why anyone should care; health literacy, health, and academic status; health literacy skills needed by children, teaches, and parents; strategies for measuring and maximizing the health literacy of youth; secondary strategies for maximizing health literacy in youth; and how to organize classroom practices to support the development of holistic health literacy. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
