Good bridge to keep your child sharp during the summer between grades.
DJM III
Like most kids my son does not look forward to having to do a little work over the summer but this book gives you maximum results for minimal effort.
Lori Metz
The exercises are comprehensive, alternating writing, math, geography, history and logic activities in a fun and challenging way!

This is a great book to use to work with your child a little (10 minutes) every day during the summer months to keep the basic math and language skills up to snuff. It has lots of motivating rewards built in and my kids actually agreed to do it, in order to get the rewards. It was also a good opportunity for me to sit down with each of them and learn what they did and did not know from the expected grade-level skills. And to focus on the short-falls. I have used each of the books in the series now for the last 2 years and will again this year.

We've used the Summer Bridge series for 4 years with our kids and love the product. The series covers math, reading, and writing with equal emphasis. There are occasional activities that are fun rather than just educational. As a parent and educator, I would highly recommend this.

We started using the bridge books between Kindergarten and 1st grade. This books are wonderful for helping maintain and sharpen skills over the summer. Each page takes no more than 20 minutes to do. I love the spelling lists and the reading lists that are in each book as well.

Like most kids my son does not look forward to having to do a little work over the summer but this book gives you maximum results for minimal effort. He enjoys setting a goal and reaping the rewards that come from it. The tracking charts in this book make it very easy to do.

The Summer Bridge series has always been our favorite way to retain skills that were learned the year before over the summer break. This workbook is no exception. The exercises are comprehensive, alternating writing, math, geography, history and logic activities in a fun and challenging way!

This book was great except I felt some of the activites were a little too easy or too hard and some kind of ridiculous! Like looking up your favorite restaurant in the phone book?!?!

this series is required reading for our son's elementary school so I decided to buy the next 2 books so I'm prepared. I like them because each page is a variety of exercises. He tolerates the activities because they're varied. It's a good way to keep him connected when he's not in school.

Great way to keep the kids from watching too much TV, while grandma' watches them during the summer. At my house we have a Summer Prize Jar, which includes various summer activities we can do as a family with little or no cost (i.e. hiking, bowling, skating, camping in the backyard, etc.) When they complete a week's worth of their Summer Activity workbook, they get to choose a prize. It keeps them motivated, excited and most importantly learning!!

I was very happy with this book for my son going into 5th grade. I wanted him to keep up his math skills - the book is wonderful for that! There are some sections (social studies, history) that I ended up crossing off because I thought it was just too hard. Some of the writing I changed up a little to make it more interesting for my son (who doesn't want to write!) I will definitely do this again next summer.
