Been reading this book on and off, so not finished yet. I find the tone of the book really great - it doesn't use too much jargon. It is 10 yrs old now so a bit dated but the ideas are still relevant and it's given me a great insight into how a brain develops and how you can give your baby the best start.

I haven't finished reading the book, however, what I've read so far I've found interesting and informative. I think the information will benefit a parent in maximising their ability and time to give their child the best start they can, without having to spend a lot of money on fancy gadgets/toys. The books offers insights into activities/products that actually add value to your child's learning capacity and those that purport to but actually don't. Glad I purchased this book.

This book is a testament to the philosophy that the simplest things are usually the best. Dr. Stamm presents her findings in a easy to read, but educational way. You are never too bogged down with the science, but still presented with enough background to understand where the information is coming from. The personal anecdotes also help to create more of a story, making the book very easy to read. Much of the information may seem simple and obvious, but as new parents, many people miss this. Stimulating, but not overstimulating; Don't believe every study that comes out; pay attention to what your baby is telling you. It all sounds very simple, but are things that can easily be forgotten in the moment. I found the book very helpful in understanding the brain development and also what I can do to ensure my baby has the best possible start. I would recommend this to anyone that is about to or already has small children.

I am really pleased with this book. It's split into three parts: attention, bonding, communication. In every part it's clearly explained, backed up with science, all aspect of this ABC. Author including simple games you can do with your baby. They are all put in the order in the end of chapter for example 0-6 mths, 6-18 mths etc, which makes it easier if you want just quick reference on what kind of game to play. Most important you don't need any expensive toys! Highly recommended!

An insightful, honest and thought-provoking book about what we can do to improve a child's brain potential in some of the most crucial periods in its development, and what we should avoid. Full of lits of examples and practical tools. Highly recommended.

The authors provided a very helpful guidance on what to focus on at each stage of baby's development (from birth to 3 years old) and also gave excellent examples of 'brain exercises' you can do with your baby. Very easy and interesting to read and full of great ideas. I loved this book and would recommend it to all future parents.

Brilliant explanation of what works and why in developing little brains. Written in an easy to read way, with enough science to satisfy my curiosity for why something should be done and enough little tools and games to keep my little one amused for years to come.
Definitely worth a read.
