“Although this new series is clearly designed to entertain and make learning enjoyable, the text of each volume is carefully chosen to convey an abundance of detailed information about nutrition and exercise. The series is a perfect complement to a science or physical education curriculum making a sometimes dreary topic both entertaining and memorable. Recommended.” —Library Media Connection

“A multi-hued crew of cartoon cats presents the various food groups and the practices of a healthy lifestyle. Each book reports which foods are in the titled group and provides simple explanations of how they affect the body. Cleary’s consistent reminders to children to help the adults in their lives eat better are helpful, too.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
