Based on whole body approaches to learning perfected by Sally Goddard Blythe and with songs by Michael Lazarev, this book gives us an essential overview of child growth from age three to seven years. It explains why movement and music are essential for healthy brain development and learning, and includes tried and tested exercises for helping children become school ready. Sally describes the neonatal reflexes and how children learn with their bodies, and explains the dangers of speeding up childhood.
Two CDs of Michael Lazarev's 10 songs and exercises provide creative and enjoyable music and movement activities to help develop coordination and language skills, while the action-stories and nursery rhymes will encourage children to move, listen, and learn.
This invaluable resource is suitable for parents, teachers, early-years educators, health visitors, paediatricians, special needs teachers and educational psychologists.
