Summer Bridge Book Aug 5, 2008
This product is a great way to keep the children up to speed with their learning over the summer. It prevents summer lag. We just work for 30 minutes most days and the kids keep their brains active. The kids also enjoy this so much that they want to work in the book
Very Happy with Service Jun 25, 2008
Very happy with service and timeliness of delivery. Will use them again in the very near future. Thanks again.
Excellent resource for continuing education through summer!!! May 30, 2008
My oldest son used the Summer Bridges books between kindergarten and 1st grade. Completing only one or two activities a day helped keep him sharp on new skills he had learned in kindergarten and prepared him for the next level. We enjoyed them so much we ordered 1st to 2nd grade for this summer and also for his younger brother pre-K to K. What I like most about the pre-K to K is the simplicity of exercises. Simply exercising dexterity is so important for rooting good writing ability. My son is only 4 and will be completing one more year of preschool before attending kindergarten, but he is already practicing tracing lines and letters. Also...we order all three available books for my oldest son..Math, Reading, and Activities. The pages are bright and interesting. All activities should take 10 minutes or less. They are simple review mapped out for moms and dads. Also in each book there are summer reading lists which are book titles appropriate for age and reading level. The children can then, after reading the book, score it according to how well they liked it. Excellent, excellent product. These books will be used in our home every summer!!!
Great summer program Jun 27, 2007
A friend told me about this book and it has been great for my soon-to-be- starting Kindergartener. It is a great review of things she already learned at pre-school and she loves the idea that this is helping her get ready for school. The summer has just started and she is 1/2 way through the book.
Love this series Jul 5, 2006
I have been using this series with my children for the last few years...I love it. Their teachers are always impressed with the amount on knowledge they retain over the summer!! I highly recommend this series.
