Playing with your baby is more than fun and games: it's the key to building a strong relationship with your infant and providing important early stimulation that promotes learning and development. Let’s Play and Learn Together provides 100 games, activities, and exercises that parents can do with their baby to foster cognitive, motor, and language skills as well as creativity and relational skills. Let’s Play and Learn Together shows parents how they can use daily caregiving routines such as feeding, diapering, dressing, bathing, and bedtime as opportunities for play, positive emotional attachment, and learning. You'll also find play ideas for each age and stage and for different developmental levels.
