We love getting new books in the house. Cooper is now able to read some on his own which is so exciting to see. He has ADHD so his reading is a bit behind so it’s nice to keep working with him on it over summer with new books that he doesn’t have memorized. I was so thrilled to review this book from the BMI doctors of Texas.
About the Book
Larvie Learns a Lesson tells the story of a caterpillar that finds himself in a dilemma as a result of unhealthy eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. With the help of his doctor, he reshapes his life, changes his eating habits and cures his high blood pressure [pillar-pressure] and diabetes [pillar-pressure]. This then enables him to transform into a strong and healthy butterfly, he was always meant to be.
I love books that have great meanings. This is all about health eating and creating good habits. Something I know we need to personally do better at. We try to make healthy meals at home and what I love about this book is it shows what happens when you eat too much and become lazy. Although I should take notes from this book as well!
I think as a child hearing a doctor say, even if it’s in a book, that they must exercise more and not watch so much TV or play video games, is a healthy way to live. The results in the book are proof of what can happen when you take care of yourself. You become a beautiful butterfly.
I think this is such an important lesson to learn and the sooner the better. I can tell you I certainly didn’t hear these things when I was growing up. Make sure to add this to your must read summer book list!
