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.

Mother, Homeschooler

As a mom and a teacher of 22 years, I appreciate the comprehensive curriculum of the Summer Fit series. We have used every one of the books. My kids look forward to their newest Summer Fit books each summer! Complete with physical exercises, math, reading, science and more, this program keeps us engaged and active all summer long. The kids don’t even think of it as school! If you’re not a Summer Fit family yet, do it! Fantastic, well-written and FUN!

There are many summer workbooks out there, but we believe Summer Fit Activities Workbooks have the most to offer. While they include activities for all subjects, it is the fitness and nutrition component that continue to interest our school administrators. The obesity rate among young children continues to rise and with these books children learn to incorporate daily habits that will lead them to live a healthy lifestyle. Healthy children are better learners and miss less days of school. With Summer Fit, students are engaged in the short but effective activities without being overwhelmed by a huge oversized book. Our customers and school administrators love Summer Fit!
