No other time in a child's intellectual development is as important as the preschool years, according to Jacob, who bases his theories on research he performed with famous child psychologist Jean Piaget. In this highly practical guide, he promotes nurturing the ways a child learns, and advises against rote learning. Since cognitive structures and functions are set during the preschool years, society's most important investment for enrichment should involve babies and children under five. His book is filled with games and activities which promote stimulation, nearly all of which employ everyday household objects or simple, inexpensive toys. Jacob recognizes that the encounters between parent and child can be miraculous. Parents and caregivers will find this valuable.
