Experimenting with Babies - Shaun Gallagher
Babies can be a joyâ€”and hard work. Now, they can also be a 50-in-1 science project kit!
This fascinating and hands-on guide shows you how to re-create landmark scientific studies on cognitive, motor, language, and behavioral developmentâ€”using your own bundle of joy as the research subject. Simple, engaging, and fun for both baby and parent, each project sheds light on how your baby is acquiring new skillsâ€”everything from recognizing faces, voices, and shapes to understanding new words, learning to walk, and even distinguishing between right and wrong.
Whether your little research subject is a newborn, a few months old, or a toddler, these simple, surprising projects will help you see the world through your babyâ€™s eyesâ€”and discover ways to strengthen newly acquired skills during your everyday interactions.
