“A great deal of experience has convinced Kranowitz and Newman -and it will surely convince you – that the little steps a child takes in his early years will be the foundation he’ll need for the rest of his life. Your child will be a little less stressed and a little more blessed if you keep this book at hand.”

— Marguerite Kelly, parenting columnist, The Washington Post




“These seemingly light-hearted games and the authors’ easy style belie their profound importance.”

— Jane M. Healy, PhD, author, Your Child’s Growing Mind and Different Learners




“Congratulations to my long-time friends on this great book. Carol and Joye are a super team. Both have decades of experience with young children combining movement, music and fun! In today’s world, where SO many activities are considered “dangerous” they show us how to assure that kids’ bodies get the motor experiences they need to be prepared for school. I love the way the book is organized (no surprise with this pair!) It’s really easy to find an activity you want to try for any child, any age or need. A great expansion to the “out-of-sync” series. Run out and get this gem for any new parent or teacher. 

— Patricia Lemer, Executive Director, Developmental Delay Resources
