Fifty-five per cent of parents admit they never read to their child. Toddlers watch 4.5 hours of TV daily. More children are obese, enter school developmentally delayed and need special education. So Sally Goddard Blythe draws on neuroscience to unpack the wisdom of nursery rhymes, playing traditional games and fairy stories for healthy child development. She explains why movement matters and how games develop children's skills at different stages of development. She offers a starter kit of stories, action games, songs and rhymes.

Sally Goddard Blythe is Director of the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology, a respected researcher of children's learning difficulties and an authority on remedial programmes. Her books include The Well Balanced Child, What Babies and Children Really Need and Reflexes, Learning and Behaviour.
