This book is extra special in that there is an app you can download for Android, iOs, or Windows for HarperCollins Unbound.  When you see a flower symbol on specific pages, it means that you go to the app and scan the page.  The app does all the rest for you – it provides you with the multimedia/interactive content about the specific page you’re reading.

Body & Soul includes workouts specially developed for young girls by Bethany’s personal trainer, recipes and information on healthy eating based on “Bethany’s food pyramid”, which follows the Mediterranean diet, and advice on deepening your spiritual health, for a total body wellness book perfect for growing girls. This isn’t a book about Bethany, this is a book about wellness, becoming your best “you”, through physical and spiritual balance, because spiritual health is just as important as physical health.

To give you a kid’s point of view, below our my eleven year old daughter’s thoughts on this book:

Body & Soul, by Bethany Hamilton, is a wonderful book that teaches you about getting closer to God while having fun exercises, and so many wonderful recipes to help you get on your way to being healthy and happy!

As Bethany talks about God, she reminds you of 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, it says that your bodies are gifts from God! You should take care of them, by honoring the Lord and staying fit.

All of the workouts and exercises she provides are fun and for almost anyone! She includes 19 different exercises in 4 different categories that start out easy, and get more challenging along the way!

And to top it all off, Bethany adds 33(!) different recipes, including “Good-for-You Apple Pie”, “Frozen Yogurt-Covered Blueberries”, and “Mango Muffins”! All of them are good and good for you!

Bethany’s book is a privilege and a blessing to read; I can tell she put a lot of thought into this book. I would definitely recommend this book to kids of any age!
