Through the book, each child gets to explore and record their appreciation for the gifts that they get from their body and discover ways that they can "be a friend" back to their body by taking care of it and keeping it healthy. The Healthy Body Book offer children a chance to be the author of their own story through activities that help them better appreciate the complexity and uniqueness of their bodies and, in turn, nurture habits that will have a positive impact on their health and well-being throughout their lives.
