Good Resource for Baby Oct 21, 2008
This book is a good resource of activities to do with baby. Some of the activities are beyond baby's abilties but overall the book offers activities that baby gets excited about, and are very engaging. I feel its a good buy!
Starts early and keeps going Sep 4, 2008
This book has a wide range of activities that use common household items. My daughter is developmentally delayed and this book really helps with ideas to hone her fine and gross motor as well as cognitive skills. There are many "toys" she will play with daily, even after that week has gone by.
Start Educating Your Child Early Jul 8, 2008
Children who come from homes where parents realize the importance of educating them before they start school are so much more successful and happy in the school experience. This has some great ideas for just that. Two other books that are invaluable for teaching a love for reading and actual reading skills (using the parent guide) early on- ages 3 and up to age 8 areLife's Little Lessons: An Inch-By-Inch Tale of Successand The Big Squeal: A Wild, True, and Twisted Tail.
Good basic idea, some activities are way off Jun 8, 2008
I love the idea of this book, and some of the activities are perfectly age appropriate and I enjoy doing. Others are so off-base I can hardly believe it. For example: When your baby is about 10 1/2 months old, you are supposed to put 3 objects in front of her, tell her the names of them, try to get the baby to say the object's name, and then ask for one of the objects and have the baby hand it to you. On a good day, an 18 month old should be able to do that! At 10 1/2 months, a baby is just going to stare at you, and pick her favorite object to chew. This game is not the least bit developmentally appropriate at all.
It also doesn't take into account that babies develop at different speeds. According to this book, your baby should have a pretty wide range of vocabulary by age 1. A few babies do, but most don't. It would be nice if the book included some modified suggestions for babies who may not be up to the game suggested.
Still, my daughter is 11 months and we've had fun going through the book doing the activities that are appropriate. I think that this is a great resource, and I do recommend purchasing it. I just think that it could be better.
great ideas Feb 11, 2008
This book is full of great ideas with activities for all toddlers. I especially like the activites for 12 months and older. I am a stay at home mom of two and sometimes get lost for new ideas. I have turned to the book several times and the kids love the activities!
