Summer Fit books are a definite win in our family! My boys look forward to the variety of activities in the book and I appreciate the skills-based practice. The graphics are colorful and engaging without being too busy. The exercise log has been a motivator for everyone to get up and moving. I appreciate the core value pages where we get a chance to learn about a role model along with activity ideas to discuss the value and put it into action.
