“Children WANT to leant. The key is TOTAL INVOLVEMENT. When a child has put all of himself into an experience—his body, his mind, his emotions, his imagination and his enthusiasm—he will learn and he will grow. He will grow not only in the specific experience at hand, but through his entire personality.” (Preface)
With this book and accompanying set of 2 vinyl records, Anne and Paul Barlin have created tools to help children learn and grow their creativity though movement. The book offers a series of stories, exercises, and explanations to help the instructors grow their confidence in exploring movement as well.
