This book teaches kids how to be healthy and fit. Usually books like this tend to be too didactic and will bore kids, but the fantastical element of the kids turning into hamsters should keep them entertained.

The theme of the story was well intentioned and there were some cute rhymes. As a whole, however, it left me winded. The story is quite long and there is no flow in sentence usage and story.

possibility for a fitness or summer camp program. Story in rhyming text. Children turning into hamsters to get fit has a humorous quality to it. Preschool-early elem recommendation.
