Gr 5–8—This attractive series will help tweens make smart, healthy choices and gain confidence. Covering a variety of topics, each volume presents 12 helpful tips aimed at improving one's overall physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Bold, clear visuals nicely complement the text, as do inserts containing pertinent statistics and bullet lists summarizing the information. The science behind the importance of sleep, eating, and exercise for bodily functions and optimal health are touched upon in an informative but not overwhelming way. Critical thinking topics are interspersed throughout, while fact sheets that summarize the content and provide new insight can be found in the back matter. VERDICT A visually appealing look at practical lifestyle changes to optimize personal health for middle schoolers.
