<DIV><P><B>"Angela Hanscom is a powerful voice for balance."<BR /> —Richard Louv, author of <I>Last Child in the Woods</I><BR /><BR /> In this important book, a pediatric occupational therapist and founder of TimberNook shows how outdoor play and unstructured freedom of movement are vital for children’s cognitive development and growth, and offers tons of fun, engaging ways to help ensure that kids grow into healthy, balanced, and resilient adults.</B><BR /><BR /> Today’s kids have adopted sedentary lifestyles filled with television, video games, and computer screens. But more and more, studies show that children need “rough and tumble” outdoor play in order to develop their sensory, motor, and executive functions. Disturbingly, a lack of movement has been shown to lead to a number of health and cognitive difficulties, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), emotion regulation and sensory processing issues, and aggressiveness at school recess break. So, how can you ensure your child is fully engaging their body, mind, and all of their senses?<BR /><BR /> Using the same philosophy that lies at the heart of her popular TimberNook program—that nature is the ultimate sensory experience, and that psychological and physical health improves for children when they spend time outside on a regular basis—author Angela Hanscom offers several strategies to help your child thrive, even if you live in an urban environment.<BR /><BR /> Today it is rare to find children rolling down hills, climbing trees, or spinning in circles just for fun. We’ve taken away merry-go-rounds, shortened the length of swings, and done away with teeter-totters to keep children safe. Children have fewer opportunities for unstructured outdoor play than ever before, and recess times at school are shrinking due to demanding educational environments.<BR /><BR /> With this book, you’ll discover little things you can do anytime, anywhere to help your kids achieve the movement they need to be happy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.</P></DIV><BR />

This helpful resource is designed to offer teachers, facilitators, and parents a wide variety of activities designed to cultivate children's problem-solving skills while fostering cooperation between group members. These hands-on projects teach children to experiment with building methods, discover new uses for everyday items, try on new personas, and express themselves as they work toward a solution as a team. Team members are required to think outside the box, communicate clearly, and cooperate with each other in order to complete each task. Activities include planning a five-day trek through the mountains; building a bridge out of marshmallows, straws, and paper; and moving a group of ping-pong balls from one location to another without touching the balls directly. Children will learn not only from each other, but also from observing how other teams navigate the tasks.

Master The Key, is the story of Steve, a very successful adviser at Outlier Capital. He began his career with the intention of having a meaningful impact on others, but the markets were booming and his motives were quickly overcome by the sweetness of easy money.<br /><br />Soon, the great recession hammered everyone, especially Steve, and he was brought to his knees. Everything was in the tank — his relationship with his wife, Lucy, and two daughters, Tina and Elle, his physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, and of course, his business. He was on the verge of losing it all.<br /><br />One night after an intense argument with his wife, Steve drove back to the office with one thought in mind: bourbon. Shortly after arriving, a phone call from Gerald, Steve’s mentor and largest client, interrupts his attempts to enjoy a neatly poured glass of the stuff. Unfortunately, he was calling to inform Steve that he would be pulling his accounts and investing them elsewhere. The devastating news launched Steve into a rage and he shattered what used to be his most prized possession, a photograph of him, Lucy and the girls.<br /><br />How could I let this happen? How could I have gone from the heights of success to this? Suddenly, Steve begins to feel as if his stomach is trying to crawl out of his mouth. He can’t breathe. He knows something is terribly wrong.<br /><br />Fortunately, when things look bleakest, a man known as The Janitor arrives, saving Steve’s life. After Steve recovers, he agrees to meet with the man who saved him. Over the next several days, The Janitor, and a few of his friends — an orphaned violinist, a Cuban refugee turned entrepreneur, and an executive coach — teach Steve that the greatest crisis humanity faces is not a financial one, but rather an even greater crisis comes from:<br /><br />- Unconsciously allowing a circumstance or someone else’s story direct one’s self-narrative<br />- Chaining one’s gifts to the pursuit of status and achievement<br />- Allowing a comfort or fear to replace action<br />- Misunderstanding the power of community<br /><br />Most importantly, they remind Steve he already possesses the key needed to fulfill his God-given potential and live a meaningful life on purpose.
