Overview

Parents are natural teachers, but they often need inspiration to direct their babies' energies into interactive activities, as well as guidance on what games to play and how to play them. Baby Play offers parents, older siblings, grandparents, and other caregivers baby-friendly skill-building activities that are easy and fun to do. Developed exclusively by Gymboree's play experts, each activity is based on ideas pioneered in the Gymboree Play and Music Programs.

The one hundred activities in this book are for infants from birth to 12 months and are grouped by age-appropriateness. Activities range in scope from quiet observation and reading time to boisterous climbing games and music making. Each activity helps your baby develop a range of skills, whether physical, emotional, social, or cognitive.

Each activity was conceived first and foremost to be fun: development and learning naturally follow. Whether you're new to parenting or want to expand your existing repertoire of activities and songs, Baby Play is a wonderful tool. It will help you and your baby learn new ways to play together, help your baby develop skills and learn about the busy world, and—most important—give your family hours of fun.

For more than a quarter century, Gymboree has helped parents and children discover the many pleasures and benefits of play. Based on established principles of early childhood education and administered by trained teachers, Gymboree's Play and Music Programs emphasize the wonder of play in a nurturing, noncompetitive environment complete with colorful, child-safe equipment. Gymboree has contributed to the international awareness of the importance of play and now runs its interactive parent-child Play and Music Programs in more than twenty-five countries.

    Good reference book

    This book lists activities/games page-by=page, age-by-age (month-by-month). It is pretty organized. What I really enjoyed about it was that it served as a good reference book. At times, searching online for something I wish I remembered from our first child takes forever. When I first opened this book, I remembered a lot of the games. It would probably make a nice baby shower gift. I'm amazed at some of the things that little infants can enjoy.
