Overview

Established in 1986, now updated and expanded, based on more than 20 years of research and observation, written in jargon-free, parent-friendly language, these books respect cultural differences and recognize the value of different parenting styles. Their focus is to help parents and caregivers turn everyday routines into playful learning opportunities and enhance communication between children and adults. The photos of real children at play are candid and reflect all cultures.

Birth to One Year, Discovering the Senses and Learning About the World features a month-by-month overview of a baby's emotional, social, physical, and intellectual development; and, 400 fun-filled activities for parent and child to share during daily routines such as mealtime, diapering, bath time, and quiet time.

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.
