Stover:

Have you ever wondered what pigs do when they’re not home? In this adorable rhyming story, readers meet Stover, a happy little pig with a secret life… he loves to be healthy! Stover focuses on keeping himself active in big and small ways, and teaches readers that they can do the same. Insightful questions following the story focus on staying active, and eating healthy foods. Stover joins Kathy’s existing book family including My Bent Tree, A CatFish Tail, and High Wire Act.

"Kathy Brodsky has done it again! Through poetry and storytelling, she imparts important lessons to children featuring animals (and even inanimate objects such as envelopes or trees). With Stover, she portrays the benefits and fun of eating healthy food and getting daily activity. Stover is a pig who enjoys his healthy lifestyle and yet, in spite of all of his work-outs, still looks like a regular pig rather than an extreme athlete! Kathy's books are exquisitely illustrated by portrait artist, Cameron Bennett. The illustrations are so gorgeous, one would enjoy the book simply for the art. However, the healthy lifestyle that Stover models will not be lost on the young audience for which the book is intended (ages 3-9).

Additionally, as with her other books, Kathy inspires a discussion among readers young and old, with a series of through provoking questions at the end of the book. These questions will be useful to both parents and teachers who may wish to delve deeper into the topics of fitness and nutrition.

While this may sound almost like a textbook for children, it is not. Rather, it is a fun and delightful book, written with rhyming poetry and exquisitely illustrated. As a pediatrician who works to promote healthy lifestyles, I plan to use this book in my practice as well as when I have the opportunity to read to children in schools or other settings." Dr. Susan Lynch, First Lady of New Hampshire
