Baby Smarts: Games for Playing and Learning by Jackie Silberg

New! Baby Smarts: Games for Playing and Learning

Winner iParenting Media Award
NAPPA Award Winner

Did you know that:

• A baby’s brain is 250% more active than that of an adult.
• The networking of the brain's synapses is nearly complete after the first 3 years of life.
• Giving your baby stimulating experiences encourages brain development that will prepare your baby for successful learning in the future.

Filled with developmental games based on the latest brain research, Baby Smarts helps you build your baby’s brain power, one activity at a time!

Baby Smarts is divided into four chapters, each representing a three-month period. Each chapter begins with a chart that helps teachers and parents anticipate the typical developmental milestones for that age. The corresponding games and activities develop and reinforce the skills babies need to reach those milestones. Each activity in Baby Smarts uses common materials—there’s no need for expensive toys or props. Every activity in Baby Smarts builds the foundation for future learning

Reading Games for Young Children

Winner Parent Media Award

The games in this book are designed to enrich three- to six-year-olds’ pre-reading skills and prepare them to be successful readers. Eleven chapters are organized by elements of literacy, such as alliteration, alphabet, letter sounds, and rhyming. The book also provides research-based information on the importance of literacy development in young children. These games will develop a love for language and joy of reading. Each activity in the book is engaging and creative, and notes the specific skills addressed by the activity.

Teaching literacy and pre-reading skills is very important to parents and teachers, and Reading Games makes learning fun. These games require little preparation and few materials. The order of the chapters is designed to follow the way children learn pre-reading skills; children learn the letters of the alphabet by sight and sound, then hear the phonemes, then are able to hear rhymes and parts of words (segments). The format of the activities allows parents and teachers to open the book to any page and do an activity, without involved preparation or gathering of materials.
