How Maji Gets Mongo Off the Couch! by Dr. J. Renae Norton
Illustrated by Steve Hayes
This delightful story for children features two pups, Maji (rhymes with magpie) and Mongo (rhymes with bongo). Maji and Mongo were dogs of the same breed, but they were very different, very different indeed. One a sad couch potato, the other a happy playful tornado. When they met Mongo never ventured outside, but that all ended when Maji knocked on his door. Feats of strength and bouts of bravery draw these adorable pups together into a friendship that changes Mongo's life forever and gives Maji a new best friend.
This is the first in a series that introduces children to components that are critical for leading a healthy lifestyle, and for building the foundation needed to grow into healthy adults. The messages in each book, though serious and potentially life-changing, are presented in a fun way that engages children. Each book also includes a practical parent’s guide to help introduce these healthy components into the home in an equally fun way.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Dr. J. Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, published author and Director of the Norton Center for Eating Disorders in Hyde Park, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. For the past 10 years she has noticed a connection between the epidemic of childhood obesity, eating disorders, and the increasing complications of both in her clinical work as well as in her research.
Dr. Norton is on a mission to shed light on these problems, particularly as they relate to prevention for U.S. children, who currently hold the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of obesity (tied with Scotland) among the world's developed nations.
Norton is currently in private practice and director of the Norton Center for Eating Disorders in Hyde Park, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. She has two gorgeous grandchildren and, of course, her beloved canine, Maji. All four walk the talk when it comes to lifestyle: playing outdoors, shooting hoops, gardening, and eating foods that come out of the ground instead of out of a bag.
