Brain-building Games your Baby Will LoveeBook - 2011
Baby Minds translates the most up-to-date scientific knowledge about infant brain development into novel techniques parents can use to nurture their babies' zest for learning. Unlike the old "improve your baby" books that had parents anxiously trying to teach their toddlers to read, this delightful program builds on the things babies do naturally and enables parents to enjoy playtime even more. Psychologists and child development experts Goodwyn & Acredolo show parents how to observe space and respond to their child's growing skills in seven key areas, from problem solving (at three months!), to memory (even before a baby can talk) and social communication. Features include: A family sign language to help babies express themselves and learn to talk. The best read-aloud techniques, and word games to foster later reading readiness . Counting games and other ways to build on early number awareness. Ways to use humor to foster creative thinking. Filled with adorable photographs of babies in action. Baby Minds is an essential addition to every parent's bookshelf.
