A Moving Child Is a Learning Child: How the Body Teaches the Brain to Think (Birth to Age 7)
Connell, Gill / Mccarthy, Cheryl
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. This book explains the learning link between the body and the brain and what early childhood educators and caregivers can do to guide it. 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. Throughout are actionable tips and activities that will keep kids moving, growing, and learning.

Moon, Rachel Y., M.d. (EDT)
Sooner or later, most parents face challenges at bedtime. From infants and toddlers, to school-age kids and adolescents, sleep time problems can affect everyone in the family. And no matter what your child’s difficulty may be – getting to sleep, staying asleep, bed-wetting, fears or nightmares it’s never too late to take steps to correct it.
Up, Down, Move Around – Math and Literacy: Active Learning for Preschoolers
Michals, Deborah Kayton
By connecting physical activity with learning, the books in this series provide preschoolers with educational enrichment as they explore, inquire, experiment, and discover. Filled with simple, stimulating games, they will have kids jumping, shaking, rolling, dancing, and clapping as they learn. Useful for parents, caregivers, and child care workers, the books contain fun activities that can be carried out easily and with minimal equipment. Activities like the Syllable Freeze Dance and Math Orchestra help young children develop number sense, practice counting and rhyming, and learn about letter shapes and story structure.
