Guide to the physical and psychological development of infants including social interaction, language, movement and intelligence.

A delightful and informative reference.

One of the most daunting adjustments for new parents is understanding their baby's mind. This is especially true when trying to determine the source of their infant's discomfort.

Far from being helpless or passive, babies display extraordinary skills and capabilities that largely go unnoticed simply because adults don't know what to look for. Babies communicate in many ways including conveying anxieties and fears that parents can soothe.

Everything Your Baby Would Ask is an enchanting and ultimately practical book that offers unique insight into what life is really like for a baby. Using a series of questions babies might ask if only they could talk, the book provides insight into the mind of an infant and documents the early months -- from the baby's point-of-view.

Chapters include:

  • My Life In Utero
  • Being Born
  • Relating to Myself and Others
  • The Road to Language
  • Learning to Move Around
  • Learning to Use My Hands
  • My Developing Intelligence

The text is lively, charming and exceptionally informative, and includes the latest scientific research on how and why babies develop as they do. Color photographs and whimsical drawings appear throughout the book.

Everything Your Baby Would Ask reveals what babies are thinking as they stare up at their mothers while feeding, babble away to themselves and play endless games of pull-myself-up-and-drop-back-to-the-floor. This is an ideal book for parents who want to understand and successfully meet their baby's emotional and physical needs.
