Fun Baby Learning Games: Activities to Support Development in Infants, Toddlers, and Two-Year-Olds
Gryphon House, 2018
Build skills while you play and learn! This fun, engaging book has research-based play activities to promote development. Each of the activities in the book has information about why it is important, how to do the activity, and what the research tells about this type of activity. The book has three parts, one for each year birth through age 3. Each part includes information about developmental milestones and divides the activities by five developmental domains: cognitive, motor, social-emotional, language, and self-esteem. Based on the premise that a parent/caregiver is the “key player” in a child’s life, the book deftly interweaves early intervention principals into practice. This is not only a valuable resource for developmental therapists, it can also empower parents/caregivers to promote healthy development on their own.
