This new book presents a wealth of information on the connections between movement and brain development during early childhood. In addition to an extensive discussion of the developmental stages that the brain and body go through during the first years of life the book also includes a wide variety of movement and sensory activities that can be used by educators or the parents of young children. The text incorporates charts, diagrams and personal experiences from the authors, and each chapter concludes with a concise summary of the material it discusses.

A Moving Child is a Learning Child introduces the "Kinetic Scale" which is "a unique framework encompassing all the elements of movement: reflexes, sensory tools (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, balance, and intuition), motor tools (power, coordination, and control), and language. It is based on six stages of movement development from birth to age seven: snugglers, squigglers, stompers, scampers, scooters, and skedaddlers and is designed to foster a balanced diet of physical activity that helps each child move, grow, and learn on the child’s individual timetable." Each step on the scale can be aligned with developmentally appropriate learning activities found within the book.

The book also contains additional downloadable digital content including printable charts, games, and activities from the book, plus a PowerPoint presentation for professional development, parent handouts, and bonus activities.

Book, 324 pages.
