Ways to Get Involved

Healthy Harold picture books are here

Tuesday, 14 May 2019

Starting in 1979, we have visited more than 7 million children. Healthy Harold has been by our side, ensuring smiles at every stop.

Adding to this, we are excited to launch a new range of Healthy Harold picture books. There are three stories to enjoy:

  • Library Liftoff: Harold discovers how the library is his ticket to anywhere. Where will he go? What will he see? Find out what he’s been up to thanks to visits to the school library!


  • Fitness Fun: Fitness + Friends = Fun for Harold, Boots and Red as their team powers through soccer season. The pressure is mounting. How will they go as the finals are approaching?


  • Making Music: Harold loves music but finds out that it is just the beginning. Will all the practice pay off for Harold and the Gumnut School Band on final concert night?

About the Author

The three stories have been written by Life Ed educator, Louise Parrott, who has worked closely with Healthy Harold for 22 years! Louise is a mother of 4 grown up children and grandmother to 10.


Reading stories to my grandchildren inspired me to start writing. After years of working alongside Healthy Harold, it’s been an honor to help him release his first series of picture books.

Harold’s fun stories are designed to share with pre-schoolers or for early readers and reinforce the safer, healthier life choices that he and Life Ed are famous for. The books also help uncover the benefits of reading for children and families.
