I’m a pediatrician and have used this journal with my patients successfully for over 2 years now. Kids and whole families are healthier because of this great tool. Our most successful story is a teen (senior in high school) who has lost about 110 pounds. She is on her third volume, having completed every single page in two full books (the books have 365 pages for daily entry.

As Amby Burfoot notes in his introduction, we’re hearing about the increasingly obese American on a daily basis now, particularly how the problem is starting with our children. Carol Goodrow’s solution starts with our children as well, and it is neither overly ambitious nor particularly challenging. It is simply this: teach your kids to eat in a healthy way *every day*, to exercise *every day*, and do it *with them.* Get them in the habit at a young age, show them that an active and healthy lifestyle is fun and enjoyable, and they’ll grow up enjoying it.

Fun book!

This is a great book for young runners. My daughter is 8 and its perfect for her. I wouldn’t recommend it for kids much older than 8 or 9- but for the age of my daughter, it’s perfect. A very fun read for her. She is implementing all of the things she is reading into her running and activity.
