Kitchener-Waterloo Record

Richmond Parents Monthly - Karen Newton
A guide that contains practical advice for establishing a routine of soft gymnastics that fit a child's individual needs. Step-by-step and clear instructions are accompanied by explanations of the physical and emotional benefits of each activity.
Treasure Valley Baby

Contemporary Pediatrics

City Parent [Toronto] - Kevin Mackinnon
Great activities that parents can do with their children from a very early age... will help you have lots of fun with your toddler, and along the way promote strength and flexibility too!
Hamilton Spectator - Lise Diebel
Large, colorful step-by-step photos and easy-to-follow instructions to demonstrate a range of relaxing and fun exercises... The physical and emotional benefits of each exercise are explained.
Children's Literature
Written by a physical therapist who has worked with babies, children and their parents, this interesting book introduces 'soft' gymnastics as a way to promote the health and fitness of children ages 12 months to 3 years. Following a brief discussion of the gross motor developmental milestones of these ages and do's and don't of soft gymnastics, the remaining chapters feature different parts of the body and exercises for each that improve flexibility and strength; for instance, spine, chest and shoulders, hip and leg mobility, head and neck flexibility, and so on. Each exercise is sequentially numbered and accompanied by a color photo of an adult and child performing each exercise. Text boxes feature tips and practice points. The last chapter entitled 'A trip to the zoo' provides role playing activities that mimic movements of animals. A great way to spend some quality time with your youngster while developing their fitness and confidence in their physical abilities. 2003, Firefly Books, Ages Adult.
— Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
