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.


Think Like a Baby cleverly helps parents understand their baby’s development through the eyes of a scientist, see the wonder of their baby’s amazing accomplishments, and keep a sense of humor about raising kids.” —Christia Spears Brown, PhD, author of Parenting Beyond Pink and Blue

"A valuable addition to the parenting literature.” —Library Journal
