"Research-based, insightful, and accessible, Rae Pica's newest professional development book is essential for teachers who want to understand, practice, and share the principles behind active learning." --Texas Child Care Quarterly

"Thank goodness for the strong wise voice of Rae Pica! She clearly speaks the truth about the issues young children are facing when they do not have enough opportunity to move. This book not only addresses the problem but provides an extensive collection of approaches and activities to remedy the situation." --Ellen Booth Church, early childhood author, keynote speaker, and product developer

"Children forced to sit at desks and listen? This book is the antidote. Pica suggests every manner of game, both physical and fun, to counteract the sterility of some of our contemporary preschools and kindergartens. Learning is not incompatible with joy!" --Roberta M. Golinkoff, PhD, Unidel H. Rodney Sharp professor of education, psychology, and linguistics and author of Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children and A Mandate for Playful Learning in Preschool
