Author Rae Pica's Body, Mind, and Child podcast series


Human Kinetics author Rae Pica is more than just an author and instructor, she’s also the executive director of Body, Mind & Child, a Web site and more developed by early childhood professionals to bring the best and latest insights and knowledge directly to parents. Body Mind & Child also produces podcasts, usually an interview with another child development specialist. These podcasts are directed towards parents, teachers, and school and district administrators—acknowledging that the key to a child’s success in life is a healthy mind in a healthy body.

 

 

Rae Pica, BS, has been a children’s physical activity specialist since 1980. A former adjunct instructor with the University of New Hampshire, she is the author of 17 books, including Experiences in Movement, the award-winning Great Games for Young Children, and A Running Start: How Play, Physical Activity, and Free Time Create a Successful Child, written for the parents of children birth to 8. Rae is known for her lively and informative workshop and keynote presentations and has shared her expertise with such groups as the Sesame Street research department, the Head Start Bureau, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, Nickelodeon’s Blue’s Clues, Gymboree, and state health departments throughout the country. She is author of the blog The Pica Perspective, in which she shares her thoughts on matters related to children and physical activity, and is the host and cocreator of Body, Mind and Child, a series of podcasts that help parents prepare their children’s minds and bodies for life. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, crocheting, and cheering on the New England Patriots.
