Bright From the Start by Jill Stamm
The complete title of this book is Bright from the start: The simple, science-backed way to nurture your child's developing mind from birth to age 3. Basically what the book does is provide a general overview of child development research and supplements it with different ideas of how to put this research into action with activities that can be done with young children to promote social, communicative, and cognitive development. If you are a parent who has done extensive reading about child development, you may find this book a little bit general. However, if you are newer to the ideas of developmental research, this book is a wonderful introduction with lots of practical ideas and advice on how to best support emerging skills that your developing baby and child are using. Where to Buy: Since this is a relatively new book (it was published in 2007) it is available in fairly wide circulation. Books stores that have a section on parenting or child development would certainly carry it and of course you can also find it on Amazon.
