Format: Paperback
Following an introduction to the Child of Our Time children, this book is divided into chapters on pregnancy and birth, the first three months, three months to a year, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 and 4-5.
The book is a lavish production: full colour throughout, loads of photos and interesting quotes from the Child of Our Time parents. Its real value, though, is in all the practical parenting tips, techniques, benchmarks and experiments.
More than a book of a TV series, this is a great how-to manual for parents, underpinned by thorough research. Just flipping through the 2-3 year old chapter now, there are tips and ideas on exercise and activity, feeding styles and food refusal, memory, finding out your child's sense of pride, curing irrational fears, how to praise, a language checklist, games to play with 2-year-olds, discipline tactics, tantrum tips, sleeping and nightmares.
Each chapter is packed with just about everything you want to know about what's going on with your child's development for the age they're at. And if you've watched the show and want to recreate some of the experiments, many of them are in the book. Even at almost 400 pages it's very readable, and there's a thorough index if you want to dip into it for a particular problem.
Having seen the parents and children in the book featured in the TV series, this book is very real-world and an inspiration to read. If you have a child under five, or are thinking about it, this is a great one-stop parenting reference book.

I bought this book to understand the development of my 5 month old niece. It's been terrific to be able to observe her behaviour and responses, and to understand them better. This book helps enlighten you, and gives you a better perspective of things and very simply what's going on. My brother and his wife have enjoyed reading it too, and I would strongly recommend this book as a helpful tool for new parents.

Format: Paperback
I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant & got this book as it focused on the unborn baby aswell as the 1st few years.

As its linked to Robert Winston I found the familiar name reassuring, as some of the books seem to have conflicting advice. It provided a different angle to some of the books which focus more on exactly what you should expect when, as it included a bit more interesting background information about genetics aswell as what you should expect, but more importantly why, which is different to many of the books on the market.

I found this an interesting & useful read, & its also well laid out & easy to flick to the bits you want.

Format: Paperback
As a parent of two both under four I have read several books on child development and I have to say this is the best so far. Not only is it interesting and ties in with the programmes you may have seen, but also it is reassuring to know that it is based on up to date responsible clinical research, rather than some mad child guru's opinion. I have found it both helpful and reassuring.

This is a great book...I believe books like this should be read by every parent in the country. Full of insight and very useful information for every parent who desires the best for their child/children.

I use this twice a year with International students on a General Education Developmental Child Psychology course at degree level. The plain English helps them enormously and is very supportive to the heavier Piaget, Freud and Bruner work I deliver! The students get a great deal from it, but wish it went further than the 5 year olds - especially to teenage years!

Highly recommend and will continue ordering 60 - 70 copies a year.

Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting book which is easy to read. It describes the stages of child development and has ideas to try our with your own child. It also tells you about children featured in the programme of same title and gives info about their social/family situations which is interesting as they are all so different.

A very will written and informative book. Very useful for any parent with young children, or for grandparents too. Even if you don't have children, it;s a very interesting book. I would recommend this to anyone with an intererest in how children develop and how to understand them a little better.
