Béatrice Millêtre

A Baby's Awakening and Development Publication date : March 20, 2005

Drawing on thirty years' experience, the author guides parents through the development of the perceptions and intelligence of their baby during its first year. What are the major steps in the acquisition of sensory and cognitive skills? What do babies really see? What do they hear? What do they perceive of the world that surrounds them? How does language acquisition develop?
Béatrice Millêtre provides practical and concrete applications of recent scientific research, and addresses such questions as: How can we help babies focus and develop their attention? How can we stimulate and accompany their progress? How can we understand them better, so as to enhance their development?
