Baby Learning Through Baby Play, A Parent's Guide for the First Two Years.
Gordon, Ira J.
The games described in this book for parents are designed to do several things. First, they will help the baby develop basic skills such as focusing the eyes, coordinating the eye and hand, and distinguishing differences among almost identical objects. Second, once he has these basic skills, he needs to become aware of how the skills can be useful in exploring the world around him. Third, the baby will learn that learning is enjoyable. Fourth, this confidence about what he is and what he can do will be enhanced by his growing trust in the parents. The games are described and illustrated under the following headings: Games for the Early Months; Games for the Sitting and "Lap" Baby; Games for the Creeper-Crawler; Activities for the Stander and Toddler; and Activities for the Older Toddler.
