This is an excellent and beautiful book about what happens in the first two years in the life of a newborn child. It is full of useful information and fantastic photos and a guide to parents on the various stages of the baby's development. It is also a consolation for anxious and insecure parents to be reassured that their baby is not unique and that all babies follow more or less the same patterns of development. We gave the book to our son and daughter in law who had a baby in September and they tell us that they can actually use the book as a kind of manual. Can be highly recommended.

I bought this because I've loved lots of Desmond Morris' books for years - from the "Naked Ape" to "Dogwatching". We had our first baby this year and so when I saw that Morris had written this I had to buy it. It's a beautiful book (would make an impressive present by the way for new parents!) with great illustrations and schematics and has lots of useful material.
The thing that just hasn't quite jelled for me with it, and this is why I rate it 4 not 5 stars, is that because it's split into lots of short sections, two pages at a time, it just doesn't read that well. Morris' typical books are really read-able and I've always loved the way you can enjoy them as a kind of non-fiction novel if that makes sense. This is not like that. I suppose it's nice in this way because you can dip in and out of it, but I've found that it just hasn't really held my attention.
Although perhaps that's because I'm too tired as a new Dad ;)

This book was bought on a whim as I thought it may provide a different insight from all the usual baby books out there. The verdict; I would thoroughly recommend to parents of a young baby! It offers a unique insight into how babies grow and develop in the first two years of life, and even has a few tips which may help along the way. Adorable pictures throughout the book. Would make a lovely gift for new parents.
