Engaging children in fun-filled play is the ideal way to give them a great start in life. Gymboree Baby and Toddler Play combines the best of Gymboree's baby and toddler activities into a comprehensive book offering hundreds of hours of fun for parents and little ones to share. More than 170 kid-tested activities have the added benefit of providing children with the foundation for the skills they'll need in preschool.

Gymboree Baby and Toddler Play is divided into two sections: Baby Play (for children from birth to 12 months) and Toddler Play (for ages one to three years). Each section contains age-appropriate games, songs, and exercises for mind and body, and every activity was developed in consultation with the child-development, play, and music experts at Gymboree. The book also contains an introduction to each age group, research reports about how children develop, four-color photos of children and parents playing together, and practical solutions to common childhood issues. All in all, this value-packed guide to play offers fun and accessible ways that parents can stimulate their children's imaginations and accelerate their learning.

- Child-development experts designed each activity, game, song, and chant to enhance learning.

- Skill spotlights describe the development and educational benefits of all the activities.

- Color photographs show parents and children demonstrating each activity.

Of all the books I took out of the library on how to play with your baby, this was the best. Clear photos, good instruction, organized loosely by age appropriateness, full colour, and just one idea per page.
