Here is an example of the Brain Games:
Brain Game #94: Where’s the Baby?

9 to 12 Months

What Brain Research Says: Researchers now confirm that how you interact with your baby and the experiences you provide have an impact on his emotional development and learning abilities.

• Find several pictures of a baby and hide them in different places.
• Chose places that are familiar to your baby—in the toy box, on the ceiling above the changing place, or under a plate on the highchair.
• Say, "Let’s go find the baby."
• Ask different questions: "Is it in the sink?" "Is it on the chair?"
• Finally ask the question, "Is it in the toy box (or other place)?"
• When your baby finds the picture, praise him and clap your hands.
• You can play this game with pictures of family members and friends.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I really like how simple this book is to use. Just find your baby's age range and pick a game. The blurb on each page about what brain research says is really informative, too." – 2012 Mom’s Best Award Panel

"I enjoyed the brain research bubbles. Sometimes infant play can seem a little pointless and it's nice to have the reminder that helps one think of it from a perspective of building the child up instead of just another simple activity. I also like the resources list and index of skills developed in the back of the book. I could see that being quite useful if you want to emphasize a certain skill for your child at a particular time." – 2012 Mom’s Best Award Panel

"I'd recommend this book to someone looking for ideas and who doesn't have much experience with children, perhaps a first-time mom. It's a good book to be included on a list of activity books to be used in combination with others for ideas." - 2012 Mom's Best Award Panel
