I love your little book. The illustrations are so much fun. It is bright, colorful and Sammy is very cute. I especially love his shoes ! I taught Kindergarten through 6th grade P.E. for years.

This would be an excellent reminder to younger kids about the importance of staying in shape, being flexible and being active. It is Sammy’s and his friends’ life-time activities that are so vital to all kids, who really need to be encouraged to participate in every day and not just the typical sports.

Sammy and his pals look like they are having so much fun being active. That is what young kids need to be involved in early because too often so many of them are being allowed to spend far too much of their time watching television, computing and playing video games, instead of participating in healthy, active, physical, outdoor games. My hat’s off to Sammy and his fabulous friends!!!!”


I love how Sammy showed the many different ways to be active for each season of the year. He also talks about healthy food options and how you can get your friends and family involved. I love that the ways Sammy gets fit are simple enough that the kiddos can do them, but they are still active enough that it sets a healthy lifestyle example for them as well. Sammy builds a snow centipede and castles. He goes for walks and he plays ball. He dances and he enjoys his surroundings.

It’s a fun book for the kiddos to read and I love that it’s educational as well. Maria makes exercising fun with Sammy The Centipede Gets Fit. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has kiddos. It’s important to get them moving regardless of the weather or the season.”
