Welcome to Day 8 of my birthday giveaway! Today’s book is one that I had the privilege to co-write:
Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power
By Holly Engel-Smothers and Susan M. Heim
With more than 100 billion neurons that would stretch more than 60,000 miles, a newborn baby’s brain is quite phenomenal! These neurons must generally form connections within the first eight months of a baby’s life to foster optimal brain growth and lifelong learning. Mommies, daddies, and caregivers are extremely vital to ensuring babies reach their full potential, and this parent guidebook offers easy-to-do techniques for developing and nurturing maximum brain power during the essential early years. Topics include:
• Factors that influence brain growth in the womb
• Fattening up the brain
• Windows of opportunity
• Development of language, vision, hearing and motor skills
• Red flags in your baby’s development
• Uncovering your baby’s temperament
• Attachment and bonding
Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power is a Mom’s Choice Award Silver Recipient, a 2009 Arizona Book Award Finalist, and winner of an iParenting Media Award for the “2009 Best Products”!
