The role a teacher plays in the development of infants today is a crucial one, write authors Kinney and Ahrens. To help teachers provide developmentally appropriate care and learn how to promote the learning of individual infants in their care, the authors have assembled dozens of activities in Beginning with Babies, an easy-to-use guide to things to do with children from birth through fifteen months.Kinney and Ahrens, authors of Tangling with Toddlers, list the materials needed for cach activity, how to make the most of interactive development with the activity, as well as why the activity is good for the baby. Chapters include development in vision and tactile skills, language and hearing skills, motor skills, and emotional/social growth skills.Beginning with Babies is the perfect book for infant program teachers, family child care providers, and parents who want to make the most of the fun they have with babies!
