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?
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.
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!!

Very good for work and lots of practical activities that I can give to the mothers I work with. .....Published on 9 Sept. 2013 by JJ
Many of the games described are those which everybody does, However worth buying at a 'used price' to get a few more ideas.Published on 8 May 2013 by anon
Very very basic games that people probably already play with their baby, for example naming parts of the body when washing in bath.Published on 7 Mar. 2011 by new mum
