Overview

A cutting-edge handbook for parents from a pioneer in infant brain development

Should you really read to your baby? Can teaching a baby sign language boost IQ? Should you pipe classical music into the nursery? Dr. Stamm translates the latest neuroscience findings into clear explanations and practical suggestions, demonstrating the importance of the simple ways you interact with your child every day. It isn’t the right “edu-tainment” that nurtures an infant’s brain. It is as simple as Attention, Bonding, and Communication, and it’s within every parent’s ability to provide. Practical games and tips for each developmental age group will show you not only what the latest findings are but, more importantly, tell you what to do with them.

This book was phenomenal! I feel more empowered to help my baby be more smart, secure and happy. I have heard all the news about how early the brain develops, but I never could figure out what to be doing with my son. Now, I know! I feel like I can make better decisions about what toys to buy (or not buy), how and why to read books, why I don't need brainy videos or TV, how to pick a child care center, etc....I feel so relieved. I'm so glad someone finally wrote a book like this that tells me not just what to do, but explains why I might want to do certain things over others.

I loved this book despite the fact that I thought its section on language development was too short and not in-depth. The book gives you great practical advise. The main idea in a nutshell is that babies first of all need to be loved, hugged and kissed. My husband liked the book as well. I'd say its a must-read for every parent.
