Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I use a values-based approach to coach 10-12 year old girls in track. Regardless of age or sport, children need to learn what it means to have courage and determination, but also to be kind and generous. Whether you are coaching or teaching, it is increasingly important to help children develop socially. Summer Fit is a great resource that incorporates values with learning and exercise that will positively impact the overall development of a child. — Catherine Raney-Norman, Speed Skater for USA and USA All-Around Champion

    My Review: School is out and the summer holiday has begun. What

    My Review: School is out and the summer holiday has begun. What best way to keep your children active than the Summer Fit Workbooks. The Summer Fit workbooks range from P-K to 5th Grade Levels. The activities and exercises in Summer Fit will take just 20-30 minutes a day to complete. Each day offers a simple and fun routine that reinforces skills not only in reading, math, language arts, and physical fitness plus a weekly core value, but basic history and geography as well.

    I have never come across a workbook that incorporates reading, writing, math with fitness and nutrition. The daily fitness program consists of 2 Aerobic days, 2 Strength days and 1 Sport day.

    The books are appropriate for each grade level, focusing on basics that will keep students involved with different activities and keep them ahead when school starts.

    If you are looking for something to keep your child active this summer, then SUMMER FIT would be something to consider. Summer Fit is the exercise book for your child’s brain and body while they are away from school. The activities are interesting, fun and educational. Like the book says, “prepare children mentally, physically and socially for the grade ahead!”

    Summer Fit is the most comprehensive summer workbook and as a former teacher I highly recommend them.

    Ages: 5 and up
