The Whole-Child, Whole-Family, Nature-Rich Guide to Moving More

Human movement is at an all-time low, and our children are currently facing both a movement and a nature deficiency, with physical, mental, and environmental consequences. The good news is, while the problem feels massive, the solution is quite simple…and fun! “Stack your life” for richer experiences that don’t take more time by learning how to:

  • Change your home’s “movement rules”
  • Dress for (movement) success
  • Add snacktivities to your meals
  • Create a dynamic homework space
  • Bring nature into your home and play
  • Plan a dynamic celebration
  • And much more!There are countless movement opportunities wherever you live; learn how to spot them! Grow Wild includes full- color photographs, stories from families in a wide array of environments (urban, rural, suburban, and around the world!), and in-depth “study sessions” for those interested in the research behind the book.Children and their families can thrive by learning to move more inside, adventure more outside, and grow wild in any environment. This is an essential guide to kids’ movement for everyone who cares for kids: parents, relatives, teachers, health professionals, and more.
