Joey The Kangaroo

Written By Len Saunders

joeyjoeyDear parents, teachers, and children:

I hope you enjoy my exercise adventure book through my neighborhood. Please read this book and exercise along with it everyday. It will also help teach younger children how to count from 1-10. Each page will explain my special journey, as well as give you a suggestion on how to do the same exercises as me in the book. Use my handy guide at the end of the book to show you how to perform all my exercises correctly. It is always important to stop exercising if you get very tired or if something hurts. Children, make sure an adult is in the room when you exercise and that you do exercises that are considered safe for you. Have fun.

Love, Joey heart

Exercise And Read Together

joeyJoey The Kangaroo is part of the "An Adventure In Exercise" book series by Len Saunders. These books motivate children to read and exercise simultaneously. The book serves 6 main purposes:

  • To make reading fun for children
  • To encourage children to read
  • To make exercise fun for children
  • To encourage children to exercise
  • To teach the children number recognition
  • To make learning numbers fun

Children need motivational ways to get active. Many of them spend countless hours involved in technology instead of activity. The "An Adventure In Exercise" book series was designed to motivate young children (ages 2-7) to get off the couch and exercise. Studies have shown that proper health habits start at a young age. Research has also shown that many overweight children become overweight adults.

Recently, the American Heart Association reported that 25 million children (one out of every three children) in the United States are overweight. One child out of every seven children are now considered obese.
