Item Description...
The Summer Smarts series provides an enjoyable, substantive bridge between grades during the summer, when a child most needs a refresher! And because young children begin to anticipate going back to school and face the pressures and expectations of a higher, more difficult grade, Summer Smarts activity books are designed to offer them a fun way to increase their confidence and self-esteem. This new series of activity workbooks is designed to meet the demand for the growing in-home educational market. It is the only series to include a unique integration of material, combining elementary school subjects such as phonics, spelling, math, and geography into one friendly workbook. Offers engaging, motivational exercises that reinforce the skills and knowledge learned during the previous school year. Arranged in a logical sequence, the worksheets move progressively from basic concepts to more difficult ones. A carefully selected Book Section supports a literature-based approach.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a cute, fun, child friendly workbook  Jul 19, 2007
This is a really cute workbook, filled with sweet illustrations and a diverse selection of excersises. The book starts with a section on "who am I" and continues with math excersises, easy science projects, geography quizes and language arts questionaires sprinkled randomly throughout the book. One of my favorite things about "Summer Smarts" is the reading selection. There are three main books to read through the summer with questions for your child to answer located at the back of the workbook. Other cute books are recomended throughout the workbook.

Having giving the book a glowing review I cannot say that my daughter agrees with me. She really dislikes worksheets in general and getting her to sit and do the excersises in this book has been next to impossible. The recomended reading is wonderful for reading to her, but they are far too difficult for her to read by herself. I purchased this book because she has been struggling in school and I thought this would help her keep from falling further behind this summer. I still recommend the book though, especially if you have the kind of child who enjoys working independantly. Like one of the other reviewers I agree that this book would be best for a child who is already doing well in school and who enjoys this sort of thing.
Keep Your Kids Engaged in Learning Over the Summer  Jun 27, 2007
I bought Summer Smarts along with another series called, Summer Bridge Activites. Both books support practice of school skills over the summer. I love how this book looks sort of like a coloring book. My son has enjoyed coloring the pages after he completes them. Unlike the other series I mentioned, this book also encourages critical thinking. My son and I have had great conversations while he was working on his pages. I think this is a great book for kids because it isn't too difficult or frustrating.
Great Preparation  Aug 24, 2005
As a former second grade teacher, I found this book an excellent preparation for second graders. There are many concepts and skills that are normally taught in late first grade or in second grade. The pages are well presented and have a fun element to them. The book would be appropriate to use throughout the second grade year as some of the sections may be somewhat difficult for before the school year starts. I bought it for a child who will start second grade this year and he loved it. His comment was that it was "pretty easy".
Summer Smarts - Second Grade  Jun 3, 2000
This book is perfect for a smart child waiting for second grade. It provides a chance to review basic skills needed in second grade without being boring or tiring. Other books of the same kind tend either to be too easy or to have too many exercises. A child who has worked hard needs some rest! This book also suggests titles for summer reading, which is great because summer reading are the ones that teach a child how nice it is to stop and read a book, and it also provides worksheets for four books. I would recommend this book to any student whose grades are C or above. For those children who are behind schedule, however, I would propose "Summer Bridge Activities" because it provides many more exercises.
