Overview

A revised and updated edition of this popular
step-by-step guide to baby development
When Baby Steps was first published in 1993, it was named one of the 10 Best Parenting Books by Child magazine. Now, this popular guide to baby's first two years has been completely revised to incorporate the latest research on the young child's developing brain and behavior, including brand-new material on temperament, language, and memory.
Baby Steps pinpoints the important events in an infant's life, examining them month by month for the first year, and in three-month intervals during the second year. Beginning with a "miniguide" to early development, the book goes on to a cover such important subjects as sleep, crying, colic, motor development, social play, and toilet training. Developmental hints and alerts throughout the book provide parents with a clear understanding of the full range of "normal" behaviors for each phase, helping to allay common anxieties.
An accessible, concrete guide to infant and toddler behavior, Baby Steps takes much of the guesswork out of parenting.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In contrast to all the 'how to' guides, this book provides readers with the in-depth developmental understanding they need to cultivate parenting techniques that work best for them and their toddler."-Child magazine

Library Journal
Developmental psychologist Kopp seeks to eliminate some of the mystery surrounding babies by providing a detailed guide to infant development during the first two years of life. Boasting numerous research summaries and a fairly high reading level, this book may not be the first choice for answering common questions regarding infant care, but it should be a welcome resource for those desiring a more in-depth understanding of their baby's development. Features include both monthly and collective chapter arrangement (e.g., "Birth to Three Months," "Toddler Times"), with "Snapshot" overviews and then "Images of Development" offering physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and language development details for that particular age. "Developmental Close-Ups" and "Sharpening Our Focus" sections concentrate on issues such as speech acquisition and cultural parenting norms. An extensive bibliography rounds out the book. Recommended for academic and large public library infant development collections.-Kay Hogan Smith, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham at Lister Hill Lib. Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
