From A to Z with Energy!

 

 26 Ways to Move and Play

 

From A to Z with Energy! is a rhythmic ode to an action-packed day in a young child’s life. It is filled with movement ideas which will inspire children to use their imaginations as they hop, gallop, twirl, and try lots of different activities and sports. The lilting verses set the tone for a lively day of movement and fun.

 

"Skate along the Ice for I! For J we Jam and Jive. K's for Kicking as you swim, and float and splash and dive." Watch the alphabet come to life as children run and twirl and jump and play their way through the ABCs with energy! This imaginative alphabet book teaches young learners not only how to move from A to Z but also how to creatively have fun as they stay active and keep their bodies healthy and strong. The book is filled with playful and colorful illustrations by Gareth Llewhellin, and includes a special section for parents and caregivers with tips for using movement to teach social-emotional skills.
