A Healthy New Year

Visit any gym in January and you will see that many adults have made getting healthier their New Year’s resolution. Let the Children’s Room help you get your young family members on the right path to a lifetime of healthy habits. You can find books for those just learning about health and nutrition in our E Nonfiction section. Located in Row 12 under our display area, this section is separated into different categories appealing to the very young. The books about food, nutrition, and the body have a brown star. The books about sports have a white star.  There is also a Health section in our Parent/Teacher Corner.

Older readers will find books on health and the body in Row 3 at j612 and books about sports and activities in Row 5 at j796. You can also select from our list of recommended children’s books on food and nutrition.

On Saturday, January 19th our drop-in craft session from 10:30am-11:15am will feature two healthy foods crafts.
