I read both the other reviews of this book (because I was surprised it hadn't got a 5-star rating overall!), and I think they both might have a point. I agree with the second review that the book's very useful. On the other hand, when my baby was born, I was in the position described by the first review (i.e. of never having spent 5 minutes with a baby before)! But I think there are probably plenty of us first-time mums out there who would be as grateful as I was for a good basic guide to what the baby might enjoy and how they should be developing at different ages. So, 5 stars.
Makes a good gift for the new parent or the Mum or Dad to be.
Well illustrated, maybe needs updating in terms of health and safety advice due to our current obsession with it (e.g. homemade toys) but I'm all for the old school approach of making your own entertainment.
There are some good games to play with babies too that also help their development so a useful 'tool' for those who need ideas on what they can do with their baby and are not familiar with old rhymes, traditions etc.
It gives lots of ideas of things to do with your little one and OK none will win the prize for innovation but it will remind you of things your mum did with you.
I particularly like the fact it is structured by activity type not by age though there is a handy table at the back. Also it is useful from birth not just once they have got sitting up.
It has lovely fun pictures too so you could almost use it as a picture book with not so little ones.
