Wallie Exercises - Children's Book Giveaway

Book Synopsis:

Wallie is mostly a wonderful dog, but his super-laziness has become a problem. So his boy convinces him to go on an adventure to get fit. With a little help from a big friend, Wallie learns how to exercise. Will he enjoy the change from pudgy pup to healthy hound or will he return to his lazy ways?

Learn important fitness concepts while following Wallie on his hilarious journey to get in shape, in Wallie Exercises. A special section with more information and original exercises (performed by Wallie) will get every kid (and pup) excited about exercise.

My Review:

The children's book, Wallie Exercises, is a colorful and fun way to get younger kids excited about exercising.  It tells of a dog who is quite lazy until, one day, he meets an elephant who teaches him about being fit and having fun.  The story is told in rhyme form, making it easy to read and remember.  There are a couple of pages at the back of the book that give some exercises that children can do and explanations of what exercise and other related words mean. 

Win It!

One person will win a book copy of Wallie Exercises.
