The Busy Body Book by Lizzy Rockwell

School Age: Second to Third Grade

Developmental Skill:  Gross Motor skills target the large muscle groups such as arms, legs and torso.  Develop these skills by jumping, throwing, running and kicking.

Review:  A very active and educational book that goes through what your body can do.  This book talks about the many different things that our bodies are made for.  It also has great picture maps of the body and the different systems (nervous, muscles, bones, etc) but in a simplified way so children can understand.  It is a fun and energetic book.

Activity:  Get active with your child!  Play outside!  Using sidewalk chalk, make a hopscotch course.  Have your child hop with both feet onto each number.  Have them also count the numbers out loud while they hop.
