"Just as kids' bodies need specific nutrients for good health, they also need a balanced diet of physical activity to help them reach their potential.

Writing in a down-to-earth style accompanied by lively color photographs, the authors reveal the truths behind children's movement and unveil the Kinetic Scale: a visual map of the active learning needs--such as balance, coordination, and control--of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and primary graders (from "snugglers" to "skedaddlers"). Throughout are actionable tips and activities that will keep kids moving, growing, and learning. Digital content includes parent handouts and customizable forms"--Provided by publisher.
