Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Offers a fun text…[and] provides a concise and relevant look at child development based on the literature from cognitive, motor, and behavioral research. Gallagher shows parents how to re-create accepted study findings by conducting brief experiments involving such innocuous activities as making faces, flashing pictures, and grasping items. These say nothing about intelligence but rather show healthy child growth, which should ease any worries rather than create anxiety. Age ranges, experimental complexity, and the areas of science relevant to the experiments are all outlined in full…followed by a ‘take-away’ section that describes how to develop further the skills addressed.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Offers insights on infant development and parenting with a humorous twist…The heart of the book is not the experiments themselves but takeaways that provide the new parent with developmental clues and suggestions for age-appropriate activities. Parents will appreciate these tips and Gallagher’s whimsical tone.” Publishers Weekly
“Parents will have fun with this book and gain new respect and awe for their babies’ amazing capabilities.” Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, PhD, H. Rodney Sharp Professor, University of Delaware
Experimenting with Babies is a wonderful book…What a fabulous way for parents to get to know their new child!” Lise Eliot, PhD, associate professor of neuroscience, Chicago Medical School
