Perfect Book For Now A lot of parents and teachers are searching for ways to get their kids off the computers and move, especially these days. This book provides some great games and easily understood instructions for these folks to engage these pre-k through grade 2 kiddos. The illustration is very cool and the kids just love the games. The right non-text, text book at the right time. Read more
Great book I was given this book from the author because I teach preK. Wow! What a great book. My students loved the illustrations and the activities. Especially the Back to back game. They giggled and wanted to play again. Not only educational but fun! The cue words really helped my students slide, skip, leap, and overall have fun! Read more
Love this book! This book is very appropriate and the graphics are delightful. I have never seen anything else like it. What a great idea to have the reader move along with the characters in the book. I am remote learning with my children and this is a great supplement for physical fitness. The book not only teaches fitness but shapes, colors, and health. I would highly recommend this book. Plus it includes 5 books in one. Read more
