There is a growing movement nationwide among grade-school children: many now want to be runners. They like the structure and sense of achievement and identity that comes with the term. They are following in the footsteps of their active parents, or following the spirit of the running and fitness boom they see around them. Carol Goodrow's new book “Kids Running” tells kids (and their parents and teachers) all they need to know about this wonderful sport: getting started, training, fun runs, races, proper footwear, good eating habits, cross-training, safety, running games, after-school clubs, clothing, mileage tracking, and journal writing. It is a fun-filled, information-packed glimpse of four kid runners as they jog, walk, sprint, play, and journal their way to running success. The book has poetry and rhymes easily recited while jogging, bouncing balls, jumping rope, or doing jumping jacks. It is full of light-hearted riddles and jokes to help impart serious information. It is a book for all kids, from the fun runner to the Junior Olympic hopeful. As a bonus,'s Coach Ed Poirier has contributed some of his best ideas to this book. His tips and suggestions will help your child refine his or her running. With a lively mix of pictures, information, vocabulary, and some entertaining asides, this book will help channel all that youthful energy toward excellent running, and a lifetime of good health.
