It's unavoidable: life is uncertain. None of us knows exactly what the future will bring. Learning to live with that uncertainty to manage our fears rather than letting them manage us is a vital skill that everyone must learn.

It also offers practical advice about what we can do when it feels like fear might be getting the best of us. Fear and anxiety are completely normal parts of growing up. Fear keeps us from climbing too high up that tree, while anxiety reminds us that we ought to study for that test tomorrow.

Recent research has shown that children learn and develop new skills more quickly when they engage in playful, whole body activities. Movement allows them to refocus their attention, improves brain function, reduces stress, and improves circulation. Not only that, but the more senses that are used for learning, the more likely information is to be stored and retrieved. The activities in Playful Learning Lab for Kids explore concepts in reading, language, math, art, music, science, geography, and social studies, all while engaging children with movements, touch, sound, and sight. Most distinguishing of all, the activities and lessons here include suggestions for tailoring the experience to different levels, making it a book children can grow with. The skills range from visual perceptual skills and spatial awareness, to early geometry concepts, visual motor integration, and fine motor skills.--Amazon.com.
