Summer Fit Activities workbooks are an engaging and effective, fully illustrated series of activity books designed to give kids fit brains and fit bodies. Research shows that children can forget 2.5 months or up to 60% of their academic skills during the summer, while other studies have shown that daily fitness and play improve a child's learning abilities and memory. Summer Fit Activities workbooks were designed with these findings in mind, incorporating a Whole-Child approach to learning in three areas: Academics, Fitness (including health, exercise, and nutrition), and Character Education.
