It's fun to be smart all summer long! SUMMER BRAIN QUEST is a whole summer of curriculum-based activities and learning adventures designed to stop summer slide, structured like a game, and captured in a workbook!
Stop summer slide! Stay summer smart! For kids who just finished kindergarten, this Common Core–aligned workbook will get you back-to-school ready for 1st grade, with hundreds of fun activities, exercises, and games.
Learn all summer long with this personalized, interactive quest! Begin with a map that guides you through a workbook jam-packed with activities based on phonics, reading, writing, counting, shapes, map skills, habitats, seasons, and more, with fun illustrations throughout.
Once you complete an activity, get your stickers and track your progress on the map! Loved by kids, teacher-approved, and parent-trusted, this Summer Brain Quest Workbook also includes bonus challenges and stickers, outside activities, a summer reading list, a Brain Quest mini deck, and more.
Also available: Brain Quest Workbooks (Pre-school through 6th Grade) and Brain Quest Decks (Pre-K through 6th-7th Grades).

1. BRAIN QUEST TAKES ON SUMMER SLUMP: Parents and teachers are on a mission to prevent "summer slide," (where most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math, and many also lose reading achievement, during the summer). Now Brain Quest joins the fight, with workbooks specially designed to keep kids sharp on exactly what they need to know, when they need to know it, targeting each summer between kindergarten and 6th grade.
2. FEELS LIKE PLAY! Summer Brain Quest is structured like a game; each book includes a pull-out map that guides kids on a learning quest. They fill in their route on the map by earning stickers for completing workbook pages as well as pursuing outdoor activities, such as "Shape Search" where the child goes to a park and looks for triangle, square, and circle shapes, or "Twos and Fives" where the child goes outdoors and names things he sees in sets of twos and fives. The map offers a choice of routes, allowing kids to customize their learning path and pursue what excites them most (extra math problems? more hands-on science?), and also encouraging them to jump around within the book to follow their curiosity. Original artwork by video game artist Edison Yan makes every book feel fresh and fun.
3. THE POWER OF BRAIN QUEST SQUASHES THE SUMMER WORKBOOK COMPETITION: Brain Quest is America's bestselling educational series with over 44 million copies in print -- and growing workbook sales every year. Each Summer Brain Quest workbook is carefully vetted by the Brain Quest Advisory Board and aligned to the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and state social studies standards. Next to Summer Brain Quest, the other summer workbooks on the market are far less interactive, with activities that feel like homework, and generic artwork.
