Active Baby, Healthy Brain helps baby carers to guide them into helping babies to develop thier natural skills. Things that one may do by instinct while caring and playing for babies yet being conscious of their benefit. At the same time understanding the pace of the babies activities not wanting to rush things and at the same time introducing new games and movements to lead them to a well balanced development.

This book is rubbish, if there were zero stars available I would give it that. The book has nothing in it that is not common sense. And cannot be classed as games. For example book advises that you place baby on his back!!!
Some of the games are in my opinion dangerous. For example the book suggests that a toddler be taught space awareness by climbing under chairs. It also recomends that you teach a toddler to climb a ladder lying on a floor!! There is some science provided by the author but it feels as if the science is provided as a means of calling the activities brain games, when in reality they are activities that all parents will surely do such as swaying and dancing with baby! (Apparently this helps the vestibular stimulation. Aka inner ear stimulation)

I also purchased dr Miriam Stoppard which was cheaper to purchase but higher quality I. Every way, games are just that games backed by good explanations and in colour as opposed to this book which is in black and white with poor drawings.

Miriam Stoppard has photos of babies doing the activities which my four month old loves looking at.

I shall be returning this irresponsible. Poor and expensive product.

A little bit repetitive but does give some good ideas about different movements to accommodate in to your child's day. This is our first child so I've found it useful as I'm not the most creative. Not a substitute for getting them out in to the great outdoors as I do everyday, but we've made up our own songs for some of the movements and we both enjoy it. My little one particularly likes the 'Jack and Jill' idea that's in the book early on. We do most of this while he lies on his play mat.

Love this book. The excersizes are really simple and so far has helped my son learn to roll over
