Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Berenstain Bears and the Excuse Note (The Berenstain Bears) It's a good book for kids who don't understand why they need to take gym class. Momma bear is pretty no-nonsense about the whole thing, which I like; after all, this is about personal health and the importance of being diligent in school, which is nothing to sneeze at. Growing up, I came into these books on my own rather than having them shown to me as lesson books; might want to introduce your kids be they your own or your students in the same way, having them read them on their own in the hopes they walk away agreeing with the message. Then you can talk about what they read! Discussion is the key to getting ideas across.
