This book must have been aimed at someone who has absolutely no idea of what to do with babies. Extremely patronising. It was not at all informative bar the first part of the book which told you what sort of things your baby should be doing at certain stages of development. I was hoping that this part would be expanded on, with maybe a brief introduction to child psychology and development. I just found it very condescending when each exercise was something that one would do fairly naturally...maybe I am mistaken. Eg. At bathtime, hold a facecloth in front of your face, then lower it and say peek-a-boo. Raise it and repeat.

I thought that this book was going to have loads of great and fun games to play, but instead it has very little in terms of imagination.

Here is an example of one of the games just to give you an idea of what's in this book:

*Caring tenderly for babies makes them feel loved and accepted.

*Singing lullabies while swaying with the baby in your arms is a wonderful way to develop trust.

*(gives an example of a lullaby)

*Think of lullabies. Sing or say them to your baby as you rock her and hold her close.

That's a game?? I thought it was more like common sense. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the introduction with baby development, but honestly, you can get that online.

Unless you have no clue whatsoever about a baby at all and feel like you're only starting at him/her all day, then don't get this book.

Agree with previuos reviewer, very thin and patronising.

Is there any parent out there who DOESN'T know that peekaboo, tickling your babies feet and singing them silly songs are things to do?

Some of the reviewers have said that this is patronising and has really obvious ideas. I agree that some of the ideas are obvious BUT there is also tons of stuff i wouldn't have thought of and its great to expand the games that we play together.

I have found a lot of great new rhymes and games that have become favorites and some I know will always guarantee squeals of laughter from us both!!

I think some of the reviews are pretty harsh. When you read the book there are some very obvious games but I like that the games are separated into babies months of age so you can see what games will be suitable for their age. I also like the simplicity of the games. I found this book really useful on those rainy days after having absolutely no sleep where I was incapable of using my imagination. I'd select a few of the games to play with my baby and it was great fun. I'm going to buy the Toddler book.

Format: Paperback
Jackie Silberg offers lots of easy and imaginative ideas of games to play with your baby (or in our case, babies) from newborn to twelve months plus. Organised by age stages, and into themes (such as bath time fun, or kitchen fun, or bonding) this gave us so many ideas. My 10 year old stepdaughter particularly loved it as a way of expanding her repertoire to entertain her new brother and sister. Favourite games included: 'One, two, three....' at which said child peals with delight) or tug of war with a sock. I loved the book for inspiration, particularly when tired out! The games are fun, full of learning, communication and tenderness: delightful for you and your little one(s). There's easily a new game a week and your confidence as a baby whisperer will grow wondrously.
