Synopsis: Every parent wants their baby to be body-confident in physical activities, self-confident in social interactions, and motivated to self-mastery in learning! In this book, parents will learn how body-confident babies become dynamic explorers, delightful communicators, and successful problem solvers when they can initiate age-appropriate play and interactions in a receptive environment. This innovative book teaches parents how to create an engaging relationship with their baby through FloorPlay activities at each stage of development during their baby’s formative first year. When parents promote their baby’s freedom of movement and encourage their baby to be an active participant in social interactions and a self-motivated learner in play, they are creating a supportive environment. By better understanding their baby’s motor development and by learning to read their baby’s preverbal communication cues (body language) in everyday social interactions, parents will deepen their bonding relationship and realize what a wondrous and incredible first year it is for their baby!
Parents (and caregivers) will discover the importance of FloorPlay through the book’s many original parent-baby activities that invite their active participation and encourage their baby’s movement, communication, and learning development. Parents (and caregivers) will develop their observation skills as they learn how to set up age-appropriate explorations for their baby and create more spontaneous play interactions that expand their baby’s expressive gestures and postures in communication. This encourages babies to be content at their developmental level so they can set up their own action plans, games and goals and make their own discoveries. Self-motivated learning to mastery contributes to their baby’s developing attention span, increased self-esteem, and pleasure in learning.
This amazing first year of development sets the stage for their emerging toddler to master new movement skills, elaborate on social communication skills, and explore new adventures just around the corner.
From the Publisher: In this timely and innovative book, Beverly Stokes draws on her extensive professional experience and her ongoing video research, since 1985, of infant movement development in the first year of life to teach parents how to nurture their baby’s natural abilities. This unique book is designed in two parts to guide parents (and caregivers) through the Pre-Locomotion and Locomotion Stages during the formative first twelve months to better illustrate how babies move, communicate, and learn. The key message of this book for parents is that by understanding their baby’s movement experience, they will learn about their baby’s motor development, how their baby communicates with them through expressive body language, and how to enhance the social and cognitive functions their baby is developing at each month in this critical first year. Through the parent-baby interaction activities at each month, parents (and caregivers) learn how to provide a receptive environment where they physically participate at their baby’s level on the floor to encourage their baby’s motor development and self-motivated learning in age-appropriate activities. The spontaneous play interactions that occur at this FloorPlay level enhances important expressive communication development between the baby and the parents (or caregivers) for better bonding.
