From the Publisher
Exercise is good for us throughout our lives, even when we are babies or very old. But as the body changes, the kinds of exercise that work best for us change too. When can we best improve our balance and co-ordination? When can we benefit most from strength training? When do we start to lose muscle - and can we do anything about it? You can find the answers to all these questions, and many more, in this book.

Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2013)
Gr 7-9-These titles discuss the milestones, challenges, and concerns people experience as their bodies change throughout their lives. Each volume opens with a broad overview, followed by five-to-seven chapters that begin with infancy and end with old age. The presentations are mostly balanced. For example, Nutrition touches upon health, eating disorders, and different kinds of diets, among many other topics. Color photographs, diagrams, and graphs illustrate the pages. "Amazing But True!" text boxes, sidebars, and captions add details and background information. Chapters conclude with a short recall quiz with answers. Either a supplementary spread of facts or a time line is appended along with suggestions of places to visit, extension ideas, and lists of print and web resources. Unfortunately, inconsistencies, labeling problems, and other issues mar the series. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
