PLAY LEARN GROW is a practical guide that will help to ensure that your baby’s early years do not just slip away – and with them the amazing opportunity to shape a little body, emotions and thought patterns. The book is packed with stimulating ideas that will develop your baby or toddler’s brain optimally, in a playful way and without any undue pressure, during the first three years.
Babies and toddlers develop so quickly that what is fun today is boring tomorrow. Whether or not your baby or toddler attends a stimulation class, the activities in PLAY LEARN GROW are age-appropriate and correspond to the latest research in development and the brain. In addition, each age-related phase concludes with a checklist that offers you the assurance that your little one is progressing. Faster is not better but progress is important and fun. And with a caring adult, it is the best brain food for 0 – 3-year-olds. Come play with us! Come Learn with us! Come Grow with us!
There is a Play Deficit in our country and it is harming our children. Our children are playing less than any previous generation, and research clearly shows this lack of play is producing profound physical, emotional, social and intellectual problems for today’s kids. We can save play so our children can be fitter, smarter, happier and healthier – DARREL HAMMOND
We are often too busy and distracted – or in too much of a hurry to stop and simply enjoy the moment, but a baby, infant or toddler knows exactly how to make us stop and pay attention to all the wonders of the world that are right there, before our eyes. It is in those moments, the ones where we make eye contact with our baby or when we hear their giggles of utter delight at the simplest of things, that time stands still and we feel truly special and blessed. All our distractions disappear into the background and these moments become the ones that really matter. Our young ones need us and depend on us, to be able to laugh out loud, to play, to sometimes just be silly, and of course- to be clever.
