Helpful parent education 18 Aug. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a grownup who wouldn't think about blocks in my day to day life, until our baby came along, I found the ideas very practical.

It should be obvious how to play with blocks. What I don't find so obvious, and what this book does a nice job with, is explaining the different developmental stages a child goes through -- and how the way I play with her can help her learn more than I would have thought from blocks. Also noted some things to simply NOT do, to get out of the child's way.

The book's prose feels written more toward children than adults. However, since the book's objective is to teach adults to think about blocks (and language, numbers, etc) from the baby/toddler's own developmental place, maybe this isn't a bad thing.

Great learning resource book, that being said......... Every child should have wooden blocks to play with and inspire their imagination. Awesome for sparking the creative in all kids.
