Your Child at Play: Birth to One Year. Discovering the Senses and Learning about the World. Second Edition.
Noting that by playing with their child, parents create a bond of intimacy important for the child's healthy development, this book describes developmental events in a baby's first 12 months and suggests play activities and their developmental purpose. Organized in a month-by-month format, the first part of each chapter presents an overview of growth in motor skills and senses. The subsections that follow--Motor Skills; Seeing, Hearing, and Feeling; and Knowing Your Baby--focus on developmental changes that you can expect during the month. The second part of each chapter gives ideas for use during daily routines such as bathing and dressing. Suggestions are also given for solving problems associated with sleeping, eating, and crying.
