In their first three years of life, babies face the most complex learning endeavor they will ever undertake as human beings: They learn to talk.

Along the way, the authors provide parents with the latest scientific findings, developmental milestones, and important advice on how to create the most effective learning environments for their children. This book takes readers on a fascinating, vitally important exploration of the dance between nature and nurture, and explains how parents can help their children learn more successfully.

Einstein was fundamental in understanding the fact that parents are obligated to interact with their children. The second book illuminates that if you pay attention you will see the wonder of the human mind's development. Enjoy this book and what your 0-3 year old's initial experiences with the human condition signify!
