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
