“The Andersuns: Jarrell’s Sweet Tooth” Reinforces Healthy Eating Habits Among Children
“We have reached a place in our society where over-abundance and indulgence is becoming less fashionable and more detrimental,” says E. Diann Cook, author of “The Andersuns: Jarrell’s Sweet Tooth.” “As parents and adults, we need numerous learning tools to protect and enhance our children’s health and welfare.”
Cook’s new children’s book, published by AuthorHouse, uses the story of Jarrell Andersun – an eight-year-old boy with a giant sweet tooth – to reinforce healthy eating habits. One day Jarrell refuses to eat the dinner his mother prepares, so his mother puts him in a “time out.” While there, he has a strange dream that changes his mind about eating sweets instead of balanced meals and shows him the importance of healthy eating.
Cook also illustrated the book herself, and includes lyrics for an original song entitled “Veggies and Fruits.” She hopes that the song will increase the reader or listener’s comprehension of maintaining a healthy diet, and will be available for download soon from Cook’s website (http://www.dijarodesigns.com). The chorus of “Veggies and Fruits” includes:
Apples, bananas, oranges, and peaches / Strawberries, grapes, all are delicious / Carrots and peas, more salad please / Veggies and fruits keep me strong and healthy
“Jarrell’s Sweet Tooth” is the first in a series of books about the Andersun family. Each book will feature family members in learning situations that will captivate readers of all ages.
