A GREAT book, co-authored by Linda Acredolo, author of Baby Signs
This offers so much insight on your infant's cognitive development
through each stage. The games are so simple and obvious, yet so very

this- even to a parent who has had already had children but now has an
infant... it reminds you to make quality time with your child.
