The book is colourful with good layout and has easy to understand charts with simple description so that you do not have to spend ages reading masses of text. There are really good number of suggestions that help develop each particular skill. You will need to do additional homework to achieve the goals as the book does not all the information as it is more of a guideline. For example, unclenching hands and counting fingers to nursery rhymes will require you to find the appropriate nursery rhyme as the verse will not be provided.
The main thing to remember which is a also noted by Dr Stoppard is that each child's development is different and therefore take the book as a guideline and do not stress if they have not achieved the goals for the particular month. Use it a guideline / check list.
Absolutely loved this book. Gave it to my hubby & he read the whole book & thought the same too.
