This book of play activities for children from 2 months to 2 years of age is designed to be used by parents, caregivers, or child care students. The games described include activities for motor, language and cognitive development, self-concept development, and interpersonal relationships. The games are grouped into eight series based on the child's age or developmental level. The descriptions of the games include the position of the parent and child, the actions involved, the goal and purpose of the game, and related activities of further extensions of the game. Each description also includes illustrations to help clarify the activities involved. In addition to the classification of the games by age, a list at the end of the book also groups the games according to the learning activity involved. (BD)
