Learning through play
Ward Lock ;
Why do babies repeatedly toss toys to the ground, grasp your fingers, or gaze intensely at mobiles? Often, child development books focus solely on physical care and changes, and ignore the importance of play. But youngsters require emotional and intellectual stimulation almost as much as food. Go through the stages of childhood, from newborn to school age, and discover what's really happening when kids are just "having fun". From the start, infants seek to form social ties, manipulate toys, and play games in an effort to understand the surrounding world. Everything they encounter facilitates learning and prepares them for becoming adults, so a caregiver's every choice has serious implications. Find out which objects suit what age, and which toys and activities encourage the growth of motor, sensory, and linguistic skills. See how you might unconsciously encourage negative personality traits, and how to ease fretfulness and prevent overstimulation. Innumerable photographs show children in a variety of moods and actions, and clarify central points about behavior.
