This is a wonderful book for first time parents, or for those who are wanting to learn more about their babies development. It is full of scientific facts, developmental milestones, and, mostly, games you can play with your little ones. Organized by age, these games include old favorites and new soon-to-be favorites, that will help your babys mind grow and will teach them about language, their body, the world and how it works, and their own feelings.
Some names of these games: The Blowing Game, Diaper Songs, Wheres the ball?, Peas and Carrots, and Tommy Thumb. 125 in all.
This book has simple ideas for ways to interact with your baby and help your baby learn. As a new (sleep deprived) mother, I found it very helpful. Each game also facilitates bonding and is fun for the parent as well as the child. I learned themes of things I can do that are age appropriate for different stages. I did not use all of the games but incorporated several from each stage into daily play with my baby. Great if you have had limited time caring for babies until your own comes along!
