About Carol Stock Kranowitz
Carol Stock Kranowitz
As a music, movement, and drama teacher for 25 years, Carol observed many out-of-sync preschoolers. To help them become more competent in their work and play, she began to study sensory processing and sensory integration (“SI”) theory. She learned to help identify her young students’ needs and to steer them into early intervention. In her writings and workshops, she explains to parents, educators, and other early childhood professionals how sensory issues play out – and provides enjoyable sensory-motor techniques for addressing them at home and school. Carol is best-known for her first book in the “Sync” series, The Out-of-Sync Child.

You can never have enough space. And if you can’t, just think of your kids–all the time they have to spend in tight spaces–like cars, planes, trains, the doctor’s office, the grocery store, being sick or housebound, waiting in line. Kids need room to move around, but there are many times when they just plain can’t have it.
This delightfully illustrated chapter book geared for 8-to-12 year olds, tells the charming tale of five family members and their naughty dog (each with a different sensory processing challenge), and how they get in sync after a tough day. The book is designed with the action of the story in larger print for younger readers to read or hear.
