Baby Brain Development

I am very interested to read about baby brain development. So I was happy to get hold of a copy of Baby Minds a book all about games to play with baby that will help build their brain and ones that your baby will love.

I will add my own review to this book when I have finished it, but in the meantime here is a review from another pre school teacher and mother for you.

Baby Minds Book Review

Baby Minds: Brain-Building Games Your Baby Will Love
By Linda Phd Acredolo, Susan Phd Goodwyn
Bantam (2000)
Book Review By: Sharmin Panjvani
"Preschool Teacher and Mom"

As a teacher, child psychology graduate and mother I have to say that this book was very useful. Even having studied most of the material in this book in university, it was a excellent reminder of the many ways to stimulate a child's mind.

Yes there are not many gmaes - and the ones included are simple and sometimes obvious. However the connection the book makes between the games, that most parents play with their babies anyway, and how those games stimulate the mind is fascinating and is what this book is really trying to do. Once you understand the function of a particular game you can adapt and modify and make new games that stimulate the same parts of the brain.

If you are looking for a strictly games book with less psychology and more actual games and songs, definitely buy Baby Play by Gymboree . It has games organized by age and then color coded on each page to highlight the game, song, skill, related research etc and you can easily find just what you want without reading all the extra stuff. Plus, there are fantastic pictures!

But I digress. Baby Minds is a book with a lot of information. It is designed, I believe, for the parent or teacher who wants to understand what their child is learning when they play. Can you successfully raise your child without reading this book? Absolutely! Will this book make you more aware of the types of activities you do with your child and what your child is gaining? Absolutely!

More than 65 delightful games and activities to jump-start your baby's amazing brainpower

Can simply singing a song or blowing a dandelion under a toddler's nose help her mind to blossom? Can your baby count, remember events, and solve problems even before he can talk? The exciting answer to both questions is yes!

Breakthrough research is revealing the extraordinary inborn abilities of infants. It is also showing how experiences during the first years of life profoundly influence intelligence, creativity, language development-and even later reading and math skills.

Now two psychologists and child development experts-authors of the bestselling Baby Signs-have created a delightful guide for parents based on the most up-to-date knowledge of how babies discover the world. You'll learn how to:

  • Create a homemade mobile to stimulate your three-month-old's delight in solving problems
  • Play a patty-cake game to help your two-year-old make logical connections
  • Initiate bedtime conversations that build your child's memory and sense of personal history
  • Develop "Baby Signs" to help your toddler communicate before he or she can talk
  • Stimulate your child's natural number skills with puppets and counting games
  • Use nursery rhymes and special read-aloud techniques to foster reading readiness
  • Nurture budding creativity with humor and fantasy play
  • And much more!

Baby Minds is not another program for creating "super babies." Instead it builds on activities that babies instinctively love to develop their unique abilities and make your daily interactions full of the joy of discovery-for both of you.
