Encouraging kids to think creatively about how to achieve their goals, this book is a fantastic way to teach children positive values as well as about how important exercise is and how much fun it can be Go! Go! Sports Girl products are designed as a fun and educational way to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, smart eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem, and overall healthy life skills for girls. The books and dolls in the series encourage all children to dream big and work hard to achieve their goals—and have fun while doing so. Ella really, really wants a dog. More than that—she needs one. She’s convinced of it. Her parents, though, aren’t as sure that she’s ready to take care of one. To prove she is responsible enough, Ella starts up a dog-running business, and in this entertaining, 710 Lexile book, children learn how Ella manages to stay fit and make her wish come true while they learn some fun facts about running.
The Go! Go! Sports Girls app is available on iTunes.
