Building Blocks for a Healthy Life: Ages Birth to 3.
Hensey, Edna R., Ed.; Relos, Ruth, Ed.
Focusing on services for infants and toddlers, this curriculum and resource guide for child caregivers provides information leading to the realization of three objectives by suggesting learning activities intended to help young children and their caregivers: (1) develop skills in choosing and practicing positive health behaviors; (2) become more accepting of responsibilities for personal health and well being; and (3) become more self-confident in their ability to control their health practices. After a brief introduction, sections of the guide offer information on parenting, child development, personal health, nutrition, injury prevention, dental health, wellness, and emotional health. Contents in each section are organized around a set of objectives that are supplemented by recommended activities and a list citing resource materials. Cited resource materials include guides and books for children and adults, as well as manuals, activity materials, pamphlets, learning packages, and films. Appended are nutrition tables and a dental chart. Approximately 100 references are cited. (RH)
