My five-year-old daughter and I have been reading Sammy the Centipede Gets Fit all day. She absolutely adores the pictures, and I have to admit, there’s something funny about all of those feet.
We haven’t read any of the previous Sammy the Centipede titles, but this book focuses on ways families can have fun together, experience nature, and exercise at the same time. It also includes some important safety tips, like never go swimming without an adult nearby.
Author Maria Luchsinger sent me Sammy the Centipede Gets Fit in exchange for my honest opinions and review. I am highly impressed by the illustrations, and believe the message of the book is convened in an engaging way.
But I do wonder about the wisdom of a centipede playing soccer. That’s an awful lot of shoes to tie!
