Reviews
“The new edition contains many pearls and practical suggestions, and includes a wealth of information designed to prepare the child for an active and fit lifestyle. The reader can easily find the section that characterizes a child’s current level of motor abilities and follow the suggested activities. This is a book to read again and again, a few pages at a time or from cover to cover.” – Kim McConnell, M.D., neurodevelopmental pediatrician, Gillette Children’s Hospital, St. Paul, MN
