Author Notes

Dorothy Einon is a lecturer in psychology at University College, London



Finally--a parent's guide that not only helps parents understand their child's development process, but shows them what they can do to enhance it. Learning Early gives parents and caregivers a simple, easy-to-use guide for instilling a joyful sense of discovery in their children during the critical learning years from birth to age six. In a format that is refreshingly straightforward and visually pleasing, parents will find complete information about activities that have specific benefits for nourishing their child's curiosity and self-confidence. Written by an international child care and development consultant, Learning Early provides: • Extensive, fascinating, easy-to-use full-color charts that illustrate each stage of a child's mental, physical, and emotional development • Parent-child activities that enhance hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, creativity, social skills, intellectual skills, language, sense of self, pretending, self-starting and independence, prewriting, prereading, and premath • Discussions of the kinds of breakthroughs represented by new behaviors • Trouble-shooting sidebars that answer frequently asked questions • Global coverage: Dorothy Einon has worked with children from all over the world; her findings are truly universal.
