Play is the language that babies know best. Here, readers will find over 300 games to play with infants from one week to eighteen months old. Divided into games that stimulate cognitive, language, emotional, and social development, this book will delight parents and babies as it helps foster mental and physical growth. It is written by an internationally recognized authority on brain games for babies. No other book on infant play has as many games or is as effective in linking games with their mental and physical health benefits. It is focused on helping parents teach their babies how to learn, rather than pushing them beyond their developmental level.
