Book Review: Experimenting with Babies

experimenting-with-babiesWhen Franci was a few weeks old, and I was finally recovered from being pregnant and giving birth, I started to realize that there wasn’t much to do with a newborn. It hadn’t really occurred to me earlier that this would be the case, but there was very little entertainment to be had. For either of us! She couldn’t sit or crawl or read books. She didn’t call me mama or sign for more milk or giggle if I tickled her. I wish that we’d had Experimenting with Babies: 50 Amazing Science Projects You Can Perform on Your Kid on hand to keep us busy!

Experimenting with Babies: 50 Amazing Science Projects You Can Perform on Your Kid outlines common scientific studies performed on babies and explains how to re-create them in your own home. They are all simple, and anything you might need for the experiment can be found around the house.

Once you’ve conducted the experiment, you can compare your findings with those of the studies.  See if your conclusions mirror what scientists discovered and read what the experts conclude about your baby’s cognitive, motor, language, and behavioral development.

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your baby, check out this book!
