About this title


Demonstrates a variety of exercises designed for children, discusses the importance of the years between five and eleven, and considers endurance, strength, coordination, and flexibility

From Library Journal:

Developed by a former world class gymnast and coach, the Gerard method for enhancing physical development through creative play is effectively illustrated in this guide to exercise for child and parent. Included are 96 exercisesfrom the basic touch and grow exercises for newborns to cartwheels for six-year-olds. The program aims to develop body awareness, coordination, strength, balance, and fine and gross motor skills. Movements and exercises in the three different spatial axes are classified according to a body color theory. One of the program's best features is the charts for plotting a child's development. Picking up where Gerard leaves off, the Prudden fitness program is aimed at children ages five through 11. Authored by fitness expert Bonnie Prudden's two daughters, this book defines fitness as preparedness for the demands that life puts on the body. The exercises included are designed to help develop endurance, strength, coordination, and flexibility. They stress the importance of building good exercise habits, and the use of music in creating a fitness program. The special needs of skilled, obese, and slow children are addressed. The carefully explained and well-illustrated exercises are grouped by body part emphasis and skill category. Both books are recommended, Gerard's especially for new parents.
