Let’s kick it off with, Finding Your Fit. Guest blogger, Kimberly King
In collaboration with Jim White, fitness expert, Finding Your Fit is the perfect book to introduce the topic of health and wellness to children. Finding Your Fit is a kid to kid guide to fitness, food, and feelings.
The storyline of Finding Your Fit is engaging and defines basic terminology in a way that is easy to comprehend for children. Children identify with the main character Gabby, as she learns to live a healthy lifestyle and develop positive self-esteem. Woven through the story are talking points and reflective journaling writing opportunities where children can express their thoughts and emotions. Parents can gather valuable information through this form of communication. Finding Your Fit opens the lines of communication and support that children often lack as they begin to develop self-esteem and identity.
Bibliotherapy is a valuable intervention for helping children cope with stressors and can provide structured communication between caregivers and children. Get ahead of self-esteem, nutrition, stress, and body image issues before they strike. This book encourages your child to learn positive, healthy habits that will last. An easy to use, kid-friendly guide to help your child feel good again. It is a great intervention tool for children who may have already fallen into bad habits. It’s never too early, or late, to find your fit!
