Balanced and Barefoot

How Unrestricted Outdoor Play Makes for Strong, Confident, and Capable Children

Angela J. Hanscom


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. 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

A Parent's Comment About the Book

This is a well written book that simply explains the benefits of supervised but unrestricted outdoor play, and explains the many benefits and reason to make sure your kid has the opportunity to engage in it. I highly recommend every parent read this.
