A great aide to parents/caregivers of babies! Learn about simple yet stimulating activities using everyday materials. The layout of this book is user friendly in that there are mostly photos with brief descriptions of activities and the rationale or value of each activity. As a story time instructor to babies and parents/caregivers, I found it very useful and implemented a few of the ideas presented.
