Content Awareness Factors:

There is an irony in a book featuring television characters who have a message about turning off TV to go exercise.


Young Reader Reaction

Sid the Science Kid is a favorite in our house, and this book was no exception! Our daughter laughed at Sid's plan to spend the whole weekend watching television ... and asked questions about whether her swimming counts as excercise.

Parent Reaction

We love Sid, too. This will be a great book to have around the next time screen time seems to be getting out of hand!

Type of Book:
This picture book offers kids examples and opportunities to learn science by doing what Sid and his friends do.
Educational Themes:

The simple message is exercise, but you can use this to further explore some of the concepts, like pulse, getting your heart rate up, etc. Do some "experiments" at home. For example, get the kids to measure their exertion with dancing v. bike riding v. running.
