"I is for skating on the Ice. For J we Jam and Jive. K is 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 includes a special section for parents and caregivers with tips for using movement to teach social emotional skills.
