This book illustrates a loving story about a family who supports one another. Their support and love for their grandpa leads to difficult conversations about how they approach a healthier lifestyle. The relatable characters offer perspectives that help to show how families navigate complex topics. The content in this book could help kids find the language and perspective to show support for their loved ones in complex situations. It is for these reasons that I highly recommend this book.

This is such a wonderful little book on an important but sometimes difficult topic, told in a way that even the youngest reader will understand. Making the connection between what we eat and how it can limit or expand our daily lives is such an important lesson and this book does it so well. The story also reinforces the importance of how we can support each other by talking, doing, and being open and honest even when it is hard. The message that it is never ‘too late’ to start is one that we all need to hear again and again. And for those of us in our advancing years, reading it with the youngsters in our lives helps to remind us that how we care for ourselves has a direct effect on our ability to care for those we love. I highly recommend this book!

It would be a great addition to a lesson in school about how to make healthy choices around how we nourish and move our bodies.
