Oils (Just a Bit) to Keep Your Body Fit: What Are Oils?

What are oils? Oils are liquid fats. They give a rich flavor to foods they are found in, such as nuts, seeds, and fish.

Goofy verse and humorous illustrations give young readers a slick bunch of examples of oils and foods rich in healthy oils. They also highlight some health benefits of eating a limited amount of oil. Oils and oil-rich foods are printed in color for easy identification.

Enjoy this flavorful serving of a book!


“A multi-hued crew of cartoon cats presents the various food groups and the practices of a healthy lifestyle. Each book reports which foods are in the titled group and provides simple explanations of how they affect the body. Cleary’s consistent reminders to children to help the adults in their lives eat better are helpful, too.” (School Library Journal, Series Made Simple)
