The Infant: 4-H Child Development Project.
Francis, Connie M.
This booklet for 4-H members who elect to undertake projects in child caregiving provides guidelines and information that help children and adolescents between 9 and 19 years of age: (1) understand infants' physical, mental, social, and emotional growth; (2) learn to care for a baby and promote feelings of security and safety; and (3) choose types of play that infants enjoy. Included in the guide are age-related suggestions for selecting projects; information on the characteristics and development of infants; an observation form; recommended ways of caring for infants; information about ways infants learn through play; and guidelines for evaluating toys. Sources for additional help with projects are listed. A "leader's guide" for both the infant and toddler units is appended. (RH)
