Review Quotes




Observing children as they develop tells us so much about them--and even more about us as their parents. Whether you're a novice scientist or an experienced one, this book offers a meaningful and fascinating way to expand your abilities as a parent using the beauty of science!"
--Mayim Bialik, PhD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Girling Up and Beyond the Sling

Now you can get into mischief before your child does! Shaun Gallagher takes a daring, whimsical approach to illuminating development in the most formative years. You'll get all caught up in the fun and games (a good thing!), and also learn a lot about your child. Truly, a top-notch approach to parent education."
--Aubrey Hargis, author of Toddler Discipline for Every Age and Stage

So fun! But also important: The more you practice observing and guiding your child, the easier it will be to let go of hovering and controlling. Your child will thank you for doing these experiments.
--Tracy Cutchlow, author of Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science
