Why , because you need both - The first book presents lots of different case studies but is strategy poor.
Book 2 , Has Fun , is jammed packed full of activities.
Four Stars because you have to buy both....looking for an alternative / another view try Raising a Sensory Smart Child: The Definitive Handbook for Helping Your Child with Sensory Integration Issues This is the Bible.... a must have.
One thing my son used to do was put his head on the ground to look at toys. He also used to avoid touching paint, glue, playDoh. He couldn't tolerate a playground and even family birthday parties were overwhelming. This book explains all of these things - all of the reasons why my son was acting the way he was. And since then, with the help of an occupational therapist, we've corrected these behaviors. My son is happier than ever. He still has SI, but he knows how to avoid certain situations and he's learning how to adapt to school, parks, the world in general.
Carol Stock Kranowitz explains and gives examples of why some kids act out in class, are aggressive, shy, etc. Anyone who is around special needs children will benefit from the knowledge on these pages. It's changed my entire world.
Like with anything new, learning the ins and outs of sensory integration takes time. It's not a super easy read and until you're familiar with the terms (tactile, vestibular, proprioception, gravitational insecurity, etc) it takes some getting used to. Don't be turned off by this last sentence, anyone can learn it and understand and then apply the techniques.
Id even recommend this for parents of typical children as everyone can benefit.
Here's the parts the book is split into:

I learned that some things which I thought were so strange because he seemed to love and hate the same type of thing were actually different enough that they would cause different reactions. If that sounds confusing, an example is that he can work with messy art projects for hours and want to paint himself as well as the paper, but if he gets ketchup on his hand at dinner he has a meltdown. The book explained different reactions for specific reasons and helped me understand what the difference in these two events was.
I'm so glad I was pointed towards this book, and will be using the "sensory diet" suggestions in the last few chapters to help my son feel more comfortable in his world.
