It wasnt long into the pandemic that Tony Temple noticed his daughter, Stori, was spending a lot of time on screens. Shed go from virtual learning to take a break by finding something to watch on the computer or television. The 8-year-old and her dad quickly agreed something needed to change. They put pen to paper and, together, made that change, in the form of a new book."I just hope the kids learn that they can be healthy and at the same time have fun with the book," said Stori Temple, who couldnt be more excited about her project: "Animal Movements."The book takes readers into the lives, minds and bodies of animals to exercise with questions like, Can you hop like a frog? And, Can you slide like a snake?Temple, a popular Kansas City-based health and wellness expert and former Mizzou football standout, said he hopes the book will encourage families to stay fit together. "This is a tool to not only strengthen the bond of your family, but to give you resources just to spark that creativity of getting back to your childlike days with your children who are going to really spark that creativity and imagination," he said. Temples philosophy is that fitness should be equal opportunity. "So, we're honestly asking people who want to invest in those underserved communities to really look at it because we would love to donate these books to these children so we can give them the opportunity to have this," he said. Hes provided a link on his website where anyone can. "We want every single kid to have the opportunity at least have the platform to be able to share this with their own families and work together," he said.
