review by Spell Outloud
"I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book is a reference book of ideas. This made it easy to read and easy to fit into my busy schedule. One thing I learned was how important movement is in the development of pathways in a young child's brain. I knew movement was important, but this book opened up my eyes to many more movement possibilities. I was able to use activities in this book for three of my children--- ages 7 months to 4 years old. I love it when I can use something for more than one kid or when it is useful for a long period of time."Read the Full Review
My 4 month old son is either right at or ahead of his milestones and I give a lot of credit to this book. The physical and sensory therapy exercises in them are well explained with both the how-to and the why. There's illustrations to help visual folks like me understand what the book is asking you to do. And lots of activities to give you an idea of what to do with your baby/toddler/preschooler if you are anything like me and looking at this human potato and wondering "what do I do with this thing?"
If I could have only ONE thing in the entire kit, this book would be it.
I loved that this spanned from birth to 5 and a half years old. I have a 4 year old and 2 year old so it has been fun to do some of these activities with them. There are some things that require equipment that we don't have but that you could do in a mommy and me or toddler gymnastics class. My youngest is two now and I can't get him to lay down for the massage portion. Many of the activities are things you can do in a mommy and me music and movement class as well, which could be fun if you are looking to get out and socialize.
I could see this being helpful for the less creative in need of exercise for their kids but I felt like this was just a waste Most of the stuff in here is just regular day to day stuff we do.
This is a must have for all parents! A great guide to help parents utilize their child’s brain and reach their full potential. You will no doubt reread this book over and over!
I'm so excited that this book is still apart of the curriculum. I bought it when my son was 1 (2018) and am now using it for my two month old. I love all of the fun ideas that I wouldn't have thought of doing with her. In, addition to how quick and easy they are.
