Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Press.

Reason for Reading:   My son read this aloud as his reader.

Part of the First Graphics series, this book has a lot of panels with narrative text and minimal comic balloons to help the beginner get used to the graphic format.  All about why snacks are important for the body and what snacks are healthy and why.  Gives ideas on how to choose healthy snacks and even presents some interesting choices you may not have thought of before.  The book was on the young side for my son but the reading level was spot-on.  He read the book in one sitting and only had trouble with a couple of words.  I thought the book was informative and and very appealing to the targeted audience.
