Agnes is a young girl with a special gift – she is able to feel when others need help. Together with her friends, Agnes creates the Academy for Health Superheroes, where she teaches humans, animals, organs and food characters how to make the world a healthier and happier place. In the first book of the Academy for Health Superheroes series, The Heart, Jack and his father become good friends with the Junk Food Monster. But then Jack’s father becomes very ill with some serious heart problems, which makes his family very sad. Luckily the Health Superheroes are here to help. Will they beat the Junk Food Monster in time to save Jack’s father?
Agnes and David’s debut children’s book uses fun characters and quirky illustrations to educate children of the importance of nutrition, exercise and positive psychology. It also contains recipes for nutritious meals and snacks for young readers to try at home. The book will appeal to readers aged 6 years and over, as well as parents and teachers wanting to encourage a healthy lifestyle in young children.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I read this book because my oldest daughter is in her fourth year of Med School and wants to be a pediatrician. This book was so informative in a fun way and very interactive. The six health and happiness masters that I loved! Agnes becomes a Doctor and goes to far away places to help sick people. Agnes has many adventures and along the way we learn about good health, how to eat right and be mindful.
There are recipes in this book as well that sounded great to me especially the pancake recipe at the end of the book.
