Every parent wants his or her child to do well in school. And every child wonders what to expect when entering a new grade each fall. The Summer Smarts series provides a bridge between grades, offering children and their parents a way to review the previous year and prepare for the school year to come. Each workbook combines elementary school subjects, such as phonics, spelling, math, geography, and reading comprehension, into a fun, age-appropriate format. Engaging motivational exercises reinforce skills and knowledge learned during the previous school year, and a carefully selected book section supports a literature-based approach and suggests appropriate books for enjoyable summer reading.
