"I'm a believer that 'Life is Better for Those Who Exercise'. Active from A to Z, my first children's book--was inspired by my loving wife Linda and the birth of our two daughters. I am a founding fan of Stan Tran’s Out of Shape cartoon, which appears monthly in CBI magazine and I am honored to have collaborated with him on this book. I consulted with my good friend and fellow Original Six hockey fan, Jim Schmaltz, managing editor of Get Active! and Muscle and Body magazines, on the text for Active from A to Z and want to thank Stan, Jim, our designer, Samantha Cuozzo, and of course, IHRSA and the Helix Company for bringing Active from A to Z to life. Our goal is to present fitness and learning in a playful way." - Jay Ablondi
