In this important book, a pediatric occupational therapist and founder of TimberNook shows how outdoor play and unstructured freedom of movement are vital for children’s cognitive development and growth, and offers tons of fun, engaging ways to help ensure that kids grow into healthy, balanced, and resilient adults. Today’s kids have adopted sedentary lifestyles filled with television, video games, and computer screens. But more and more, studies show that children need “rough and tumble” outdoor play in order to develop their sensory, motor, and executive functions. Disturbingly, a lack of movement has been shown to lead to a number of health and cognitive difficulties, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), emotion regulation and sensory processing issues, and aggressiveness at school recess break. So, how can you ensure your child is fully engaging their body, mind, and all of their senses? Using the same philosophy that lies at the heart of her popular TimberNook program—that nature is the ultimate sensory experience, and that psychological and physical health improves for children when they spend time outside on a regular basis—author Angela Hanscom offers several strategies to help your child thrive, even if you live in an urban environment. Today it is rare to find children rolling down hills, climbing trees, or spinning in circles just for fun. We’ve taken away merry-go-rounds, shortened the length of swings, and done away with teeter-totters to keep children safe. Children have fewer opportunities for unstructured outdoor play than ever before, and recess times at school are shrinking due to demanding educational environments. With this book, you’ll discover little things you can do anytime, anywhere to help your kids achieve the movement they need to be happy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.

Finally, a resource for nervous and fearful flyers from someone who can relate! Written by an "expert passenger" and former nervous flyer, this portable "flight coach" provides honest, realistic and time-tested ways to manage flight (and possibly even enjoy the experience). The Nervous Flyer's Handbook will help you: Understand that your feelings about flight are normal Put your nervousness or fear into perspective Think about flight in new ways Prepare for a flight in order to minimize any additional stressors Understand the basics and get through each phase of flight Plan effective, distracting activities and coping techniques Manage special issues that might come up Don't let your nervousness about flight take priority over visiting loved ones, taking that vacation, or an important business trip. The Nervous Flyer's Handbook is here to encourage and coach you along - for all of your future flights! Kate Fellows has been a domestic and international "reluctant frequent flyer" for over 20 years, with well over five hundred flights worth of experience. For many of those years, she struggled with an intense fear of flying, but was determined to not let that stop her from visiting family and taking business trips. Finding most fear-of-flying resources from pilots and psychologists either too technical, unrealistic or generic, Kate started writing down her own perspectives, coping techniques and other ideas about the flight experience. Her pile of notes grew with each flight, and she found that re-reading these before and during each flight greatly reduced her fear of flying. Today Kate flies confidently and with ease, and those notes have evolved into this book, which she hopes can benefit other passengers in the same way. Kate lives with her family in Washington state."

Children's health has made tremendous strides over the past century. In general, life expectancy has increased by more than thirty years since 1900 and much of this improvement is due to the reduction of infant and early childhood mortality. Given this trajectory toward a healthier childhood, we begin the 21st-century with a shocking developmentâ€"an epidemic of obesity in children and youth. The increased number of obese children throughout the U.S. during the past 25 years has led policymakers to rank it as one of the most critical public health threats of the 21st-century. Preventing Childhood Obesity provides a broad-based examination of the nature, extent, and consequences of obesity in U.S. children and youth, including the social, environmental, medical, and dietary factors responsible for its increased prevalence. The book also offers a prevention-oriented action plan that identifies the most promising array of short-term and longer-term interventions, as well as recommendations for the roles and responsibilities of numerous stakeholders in various sectors of society to reduce its future occurrence. Preventing Childhood Obesity explores the underlying causes of this serious health problem and the actions needed to initiate, support, and sustain the societal and lifestyle changes that can reverse the trend among our children and youth.
