"A game-changing book on child development--and the importance of physical play--for this digital and screen age"-- Provided by publisher.
For children to develop to their fullest potential, their sensory system-- the five basic senses, movement and balance, body awareness, and internal perception-- needs to be stimulated from the time they are born. Children explore their environment by touching new textures, including their food, running, jumping, climbing, and splashing outside. In the past kids spent their days playing outside and naturally engaging their sensory system and building key developmental skills. Ticktin has seen an increase in cases of children who are delayed in walking, talking, and playing by themselves and with their peers-- because they are spending more time in front of screens and less time exploring and interacting with their environment. Here she offers activities that will encourage development of sensory play. -- adapted from jacket
