Abstract
Que peut-on utiliser comme jouets sécuritaires et intéressants parmi ce qui se trouve chez soi? Compte tenu de l'évolution des intérêts et des habiletés de l'enfant de la naissance jusqu'à 12 ans, quels jouets sont les plus susceptibles de l'intéresser à chaque âge? Doit-on donner aux enfants des jouets exclusivement identifiés à leur sexe ? Quels sont les critères d'un bon jouet et comment choisir? Il existe certains pièges à éviter quand on offre un jouet: quels sont-ils? Ceux qui les fabriquent sont-ils régis par des réglementations? Quel type d'évaluation font-ils avant de mettre leurs produits en marché? Voici quelques-unes des questions qui trouveront réponse dans cet ouvrage.

Abstract
Les statistiques le confirment : les enfants sont plus sédentaires qu?avant. Des changements familiaux, sociaux et technologiques font en sorte qu?ils semblent avoir perdu l?habitude ? ou qu?on ne leur laisse plus le temps - de jouer spontanément dehors à toute heure du jour, seuls, en groupe ou en famille, autour de la maison, au parc ou dans d?autres endroits verts, quand ils sont accessibles? Pourtant, les bienfaits du jeu libre et actif à l?extérieur, lorsque ceux-ci sont pratiqués en toute sécurité, sont multiples. Peu importe leur âge, les enfants accèdent ainsi à de nouvelles expériences, dépensent leur énergie, laissent libre court à leur imagination, éliminent les effets négatifs du stress, améliorent leur condition physique, leur concentration de même que leur sommeil. Bref, ils grandissent de la plus belle des façons. En servant de modèles aux jeunes, les parents contribuent activement à leur faire découvrir le plaisir de jouer dehors. En plus de fournir des clés pour y parvenir, Viens jouer dehors! leur suggère plusieurs jeux adaptés à différents âges, différents lieux et à chaque saison.

Abstract
LEARNING. Our children spend their days being passively instructed, and made to sit still and take tests--often against their will. We call this imprisonment schooling, yet wonder why kids become bored and misbehave. Even outside of school children today seldom play and explore without adult supervision, and are afforded few opportunities to control their own lives. The result: anxious, unfocused children who see schooling--and life--as a series of hoops to struggle through. In "Free to Learn," developmental psychologist Peter Gray argues that our children, if free to pursue their own interests through play, will not only learn all they need to know, but will do so with energy and passion. Children come into this world burning to learn, equipped with the curiosity, playfulness, and sociability to direct their own education. Yet we have squelched such instincts in a school model originally developed to indoctrinate, not to promote intellectual growth.

Occupational therapy uses simple, fun activities to help kids learn the skills they need for daily life, from eating meals and writing the alphabet to socializing with friends and family. Occupational Therapy Activities for Kids is designed to help children at all developmental ability levels strengthen those skills by playing their way through 100 exciting exercises that are easy to do at home anytime.
-
This family-friendly guide offers concise information on how occupational therapy works and shows you how to apply it in a way that benefits your child. The games are even divided into chapters based on different types of occupational therapy skills―sensory processing, motor, social-emotional, and cognitive and visual processing―so you can focus on the ones that are most important for your child.
-
Customizable for your kid―Every chapter starts with the simplest activities and increases in complexity, with tips on how to make each activity easier or harder.
-
No experience necessary―From Balloon Volleyball to Find the Treasure, most exercises can be done with things you probably already have in your home. No prior knowledge or special tools required.
-
All kids, all ages―These occupational therapy activities are built for kids 1 to 6 years old with various developmental challenges, but they can help all kids improve their physical, social-emotional, and cognitive abilities.

Abstract
A book that aims at proving that training preschoolers with flash cards and attempting to hurry intellectual development doesn't pay off. In fact, the authors claim, kids who are pressured early on to join the academic rat race don't fair any better than children who are allowed to take their time. Alarmed by the current trend toward creating baby Einsteins, the book urges parents to step back and practice the "Three R's: Reflect, Resist, and Recenter." Instead of pushing preschoolers into academically oriented programs that focus on early achievement, the authors suggest that children learn best through simple playtime, which enhances problem solving skills, attention span, social development and creativity. The authors walk parents through much of the recent research on the way children learn, debunking such myths as the Mozart effect, and pointing out that much learning unravels naturally, programmed through centuries of evolution.
