The Well-Balanced Child Aug 31, 2005
This book is wonderful for those interested in the development of babies into childhood. It puts perspective as to why some children have learning issues, and how their development as babies directly impacts their learning later in life.

This last year alone, I have spent many hundreds of hours researching the Vestibular System, and the effects of quality exercise and nutrition upon it, and the developing body. I wish I had discovered this book earlier - the majority of that time I could have utilised going deeper into the wide range of references Sally Goddard Blythe has also provided.
I have been actively encourageing my colleagues in the High School situation, in different Martial Arts organizations, and in the Circular Strength Training groups, to purchase this text as a integral and very valuable resource.
I would also love to meet this lady - what a absolute treasure house of ideas she would be, for stimulating new, exciting ways of instruction for all.
