It fills a void for daily parenting skills and makes a great gift for every new parent!" -- Rhonda Clements, EdD, former President of the American Association for the Child's Right to Play, Professor of Physical Education at Manhattanville College, and author of nine books on children's games and play activities "Rarely have I been presented with a book so user-friendly, complete, and profound in its breadth of understanding of early childhood development as Margaret Sassé's book. It is truly a must-have book for all new parents, grandparents, and people working with preschool children. Margaret has come to the heart of what is most essential for our precious children today -- rich sensory experiences, movement, play, and human connection. Margaret has given the world a wonderful gift." -- Carla Hannaford, PhD, biologist, educator, and author of Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your Head and other movement-based learning titles
