From biomechanist and best-selling author Katy Bowman comes her eagerly anticipated guide to getting kids - from babies to preteens - and their families moving more, together, and outside.

Our kids are moving less than any other generation in human history; indoor time and screen time have skyrocketed. As adults and kids turn more to "convenient" tech-based solutions, tasks that once required head-to-toe use of our muscles and bones can be done with a click and a swipe. Without realizing it, we've traded convenience for the movement-rich environment that our physical, mental, and environmental health depends on.

But good news, while the problem feels massive, the solution is simple...and fun! Grow Wild not only breaks down the "big ideas" behind movement as a nutrient, it also serves as a field guide on how to spot the movement opportunities we're currently missing.

Learn to "stack your life" for richer experiences that don't take more time:

  • Set up your home to promote more movement, naturally
  • Dress for (movement) success
  • Add snack-tivities to your meals
  • Plan dynamic celebrations
  • Create a dynamic homework space
  • Bring nature into your home and play...and much more!
  • Bowman has written Grow Wild to show where movement used to fit into the activities of daily life, and, more importantly, how it can again. The perfect companion to Bowman's best seller Move Your DNA, Grow Wild provides practical, everyday, nature-rich ideas on how to let kids move their DNA while doing things they'll love. Necessary listening to anyone who spends time with children. There are countless movement opportunities wherever you live. You just need to know how to spot them.

    PLEASE NOTE: This audiobook includes a supplemental PDF with charts, graphics, and references.
