Reviewers Comments: Four-page full color brochure emphasizes the health benefits of walking for better health. It features beautiful photos of people of all ages walking in different seasons and settings; however, the people photographed lack diversity. Includes helpful walking tips and a true false quiz on the benefits of walking. Brochure is visually appealing and laid out well, however some of the text may be difficult for low level readers.
