Run for Fun

Catherine Marshall
Daniela Frongia


Look outside - Blue sky, bright sun. Let’s play game  And run for fun!

Running doesn't have to be a race. There are no winners and losers in this story - only the joy of being active in the playground, and of building strength, fitness and resilience. Learning a new skill can be challenging, but confidence comes through practice, learning from others and perseverance.

Running is fundamental to every child's ongoing sporting and recreational life. This delightful and brightly illustrated rhyming story will help parents and educators promote healthy play outdoors for young children.
