This book gives parents tremendous insight into their children's physical, cognitive, language, and social development
Featuring 33 lab-tested research experiments parents can easily re-create at home, this book is presented in a lighthearted, entertaining, yet authoritative manner. Each experiment is followed by a discussion of its practical implications for parents—why to bring more than one toy to a restaurant, why not to overuse a baby walker, which baby gadgets to buy (and not to buy), surefire tactics for keeping keys and cell phones out of baby's mouth, how to get her to be perfectly happy eating just half of her dessert, and much more. With this book, amazed parents won't just read about how their children are developing; why they behave as they do; and how to be a great, effective parent, they will actually see it all happening while interacting and having fun with their child at the same time.

This is such a great book. Useful parenting information, but written in a non-condescending, funny way that doesn't make you feel like you're a total failure for not already knowing/following it. But really just an interesting, light read about the subject we parents enjoy most: our babies. I really wish It had been written when my baby was tiny, but even though she's already a big toddler the baby section was worth reading for the tips at the end of each experiment. Totally worth reading!
