Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
If your active toddler is ready to go to the park before he's finished playing hide-and-seek -- always ready for the next activity -- Gymboree has the answer for you.
Parents Express (Philadelphia)
Designed to match key states in child development. The directions are clear and how the activity benefits the child is shown through easy to understand charts.
Success Through Play Magazine
What is so special about this book is that you won't be required to go and buy a host of expensive "developmental toys" but instead, the activities presented use every day items that you have around your house.... A terrific Baby Shower Gift that will empower parents to take active role in playing with their baby and provide many hours of fun for everyone.
