Henry and the Gym Monster
"Henry and the Gym Monster is a fun read that would be a welcome addition to any family or classroom library. Henry is like a lot of kids, he loves PE class. He dreams about dancing, playing soccer and doing curl ups. Unfortunately, when Henry gets to the gym he discovers Manny the Monster is there to urge him to act impulsively and ignore his teacher and the feelings of his classmates. And every time Henry earns a strike, Manny the Monster gets bigger and bigger. With the help of his PE teacher Henry learns that gym class is more fun when we listen, act respectfully and cooperate with others.
More than just a fun story, Henry and the Gym Monster is a wonderful way to start meaningful conversations with kids about self-control and making thoughtful choices in gym class and in life. It is also a great reminder that gym class is no longer all about sports, competition and dodge balls, it has evolved to be a class where kids learn important life lessons about following directions, problem solving and working together with others."
