Learning to lead a healthy lifestyle begins during the early years. Part of the Growing, Growing Strong series, this body care curriculum includes activities and background information to help children develop lifelong healthy habits.

The earlier children learn about safety, the more naturally they will develop habits that lead to lifelong patterns of safe behavior. These activities introduce topics—such as seat belt use, fire and burn prevention, and tobacco and alcohol awareness&mdashin developmentally appropriate ways to help children take care of themselves.

This book includes

An overview of the safety topics covered in the curriculum
Suggested interest area materials and supports for creating the learning environment
Learning objectives and vocabulary words
Suggestions for evaluating children's understanding of each safety topic
More than 30 classroom activities
Family information and take-home activities
