BRIGHT BABY (article first published : 2002-07-10)

Dr Richard C Woolfson’s Bright Baby is divided into five-easy-to-read chapters dealing with developmental progress in movement, hand-eye co-ordination, language, learning, and social skills from birth to 15 months. Delightful, colourful photos enhance each page. The well laid-out format, interspersed by top tips, question-and-answer panels and great ideas, is well researched, realistic and inspiring.

Each section is divided into age groups and focuses specifically on baby’s development in each period. There is also an excellent overview of the chapter with developmental charts giving the reader an idea of what the child should be doing at that age and how to stimulate the achievement of these skills.

Bright Baby is also unique in the aspect that it deals with topics like the role of grandparents in the baby’s life, gender differences, birth order and sibling rivalry and how these aspects in your child’s life affect their development.

The author Dr Richard C. Woolfson, is a leading child psychologist, writer and broadcaster in the United Kingdom. He has published a number of books on child development. In Bright Baby he has definitely connected with today’s babies and parents and gives expert advice and a refreshing new take on stimulating baby’s natural talents and abilities.

Bright Baby is also available in Afrikaans as Slim Kind. The 144-page soft cover book is published by Struik Publishers and retails at R139.95
