Review

This is a very practical and entertaining window into the baby's first year and a half. van de Rijt and Plooij have observed and found the vulnerable times in an infant's development that I independently came to in my book Touchpoints --(Perseus)<br \><br \>Anyone who deals with infants and young children will want to read 'The Wonder Weeks.' This book will open parents' eyes to aspects of their children's growth, development, changing behavior, and emotional responsiveness that they might otherwise not notice or find puzzling and distressing. --(Catherine Snow, Ph.D., Shattuck Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education).<br \><br \>Van de Rijt and Plooij's work on infant development has enormous value for clinical use and scientific application. Not only have they explained the periods of puzzling, difficult behavior in infancy which so worry parents, they have also shown how these behaviors mark developmental leaps and have described the stages in the infant's understanding. Together, this gives parents and professionals soundly based insight into babies' developing minds. What's more, van de Rijt and Plooij have described the play and communication that work best with babies at different ages and thus helped parents understand and connect sensitively with their babies. This parent-child connection is the major prerequisite for the development of secure, well-adjusted children. 'The Wonder Weeks' is essential reading for everyone who works with infants: pediatricians, social workers, psychologists, and, of course, parents. --(John Richer, Ph.D., Dip. Clin.

I've found this really useful in explaining some of my newborn's behaviour, and how to respond to it. It also gives you lots of subtle signs to look out for that you can have fun developing with your baby. Would recommend even if you already have the free app- it gives you much more. It can also be read in small chunks over the weeks- perfect if the only time you have for reading these days is 2 minutes in between stuffing some Maltesers in your mouth in lieu of lunch and applying some extra deodorant instead of showering 😁
