Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Each chapter is focused on a month in the development of a child up to twelve months or the first year. Included in each chapter is Baby's viewpoint which allows readers to focus on the baby's development level. This is followed by subsections concerning motor skills, seeing, hearing, feeling and knowing the baby. The section, "Knowing Your Baby" advises parents and caregivers about the changes that can be expected during the given month. The last part of each chapter contains an extensive list of suggested activities that parents or caregivers can engage in with the baby. The pictures really help, and parents of just about any ethnic group should be able to relate to all that is contained in the book because of the diversity in the photographs. Part of "Your Child At Play" series. 1999 (orig.
