"As a School Librarian, I have read Len Saunders' books, Joey the Kangaroo and Spunky the Monkey to my Pre-school through 3rd grade classes and they loved them. We did the exercises as we read them and they were very inspired to do them. The illustrations are very kid friendly and the writing easy to follow with rhyming that appeals to young children. We are all anticipating the next one!"
Elizabeth Jemas - School Librarian
"Joey the Kangaroo and Spunky the Monkey will get will get kids to pretend to shimmy up a tree, do jumping jacks, and more!"
"What a wonderful way to merge literacy and physical activity! The Joey and Spunky books are both a teacher's and parent's dream: getting kids excited about reading in a kinesthetic way. These books are treasures!"
Sheila Frye - School Reading Specialist

"Before dinner the kids and I read Spunky the Monkey and do the exercising together. After dinner they ask if we could read Joey the Kangaroo. I am trying to make the books part of our daily rituals to show the kids how important it is to exercise and stay fit!"
Kim DeMaria - Parent / Kindergarten Teacher
"Look for creative products, such as the 'An Adventure In Exercise' book series starring Spunky the Monkey and Joey the Kangaroo for ages 2-7. These books are interactive, as children read the books, and exercise along with the characters on each page."
The Dallas Morning News
"Because kids are spending more and more time in front of the computer and television instead of engaging in physical activities, the goal of these books are to not only make reading fun, but exercise too."
