As adults, we often underestimate the value that play has in developing children both physically and mentally. In the first few years of a child¿s life, the brain is growing at a rapid rate and play cannot be overvalued at this time as it allows a child to engage and make sense of the world. Child¿s Play is an activity book filled with play ideas for parents to enjoy with their toddlers, from 12 months through to three years of age. Each game offers parents the chance to relish, encourage and assist in their child¿s key developmental stage, and all activities are based on sound techniques of early-childhood education. They are presented with guidelines and suggestions that progress in terms of difficulty, and no specialised knowledge or equipment is necessary. From encouraging your infant to explore the sense of touch and increase their coordination to performing action songs and discovering the garden or local park, Child¿s Play offers children and parents the chance to learn and play together.
