Summer Fit Learning Series and a Giveaway

About the series: We know from more than 100 years of research that summer learning loss is a reality. Some students can lose large pieces of their yearly academic gains if they do not continue to practice and review. We believe that parents and caregivers are the critical piece in combating the summer slide and summer weight gain. Keeping children busy, active and learning at home this summer is key to academic success in the upcoming school year.

Summer Fit Activity Books are based on Common Core standards and include daily activities in math, reading, writing, language arts and science. However, Summer Fit moves summer learning beyond academics to also prepare children physically and socially for the grade ahead. Daily fitness exercises are designed to jump start the recommended 60 minutes of active play a day that children need to grow up healthy. Role models from throughout history including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Harriet Tubman help reinforce core values such as honesty, respect and trustworthiness on a week-to-week basis.

Summer Fit is a great resource to use during the critical months of summer to prepare children for the grade ahead. Additional product information and promotional flyers are available on their website. You can also check out their youtube video

My review: I was way excited when I got an offer to review this book. I usually grab one of these type of books for our youngest daughter, who will be going into third grade this year. I have never seen this specific series before, but there are some things that I really love about it. I love that it has sections on values, fitness, good nutrition and even places for the kids to write as kind of a journal. This book is organized by weeks, there's an exercise for each day as well as a page to learn from, whether it's math, science, literature, history...whatever. This is really an excellent resource for kids and parents alike!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The best part is that one of my lucky readers can win a copy of their choice, enter on the rafflecopter form.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.

About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
