Between ages two and a half and five, a child's development progresses at an astounding pace--but there is still much that parents can do to help the process along. Kids look for parents' stimulation and guidance to boost their confidence, strengthen learning skills, improve hand-eye coordination, and enhance all-around physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. A noted child psychologist offers parents expert advice on helping children achieve their full potential. Development charts show information at a glance, summarizing average development between ages two and a half through five. Succeeding chapters focus on body movement, hand-eye coordination, language development, learning skills, and social and emotional development. This color-illustrated and handsomely produced book also features enlightening sidebars that summarize important points in the text and present advice in capsule form.
