As a parent or an educator you have one goal in mind, to help your children or charge to reach their full potential. There are many simple games and activities that you can use to interact with your children while at the same time helping with their brain development. In 125 Brain Games for Toddlers and Twos, early childhood advocate Jackie Silberg has compiled an outstanding collection of games that will aid in the development of your baby's brain and cognitive skills while also being - well - fun!

This book begins with a brief introduction that explains how a child's brain develops and just how formative the '12-36 month' stage is to a child's long term development. The book then moves on to the games. Each game begins with a note as to what age the game is targeted for, along with information on what researchers say about brain development at that particular stage. What follows is instruction on how to play the 'game' along with any information relevant to understanding the various skills that your child might already have developed and how the game in question will help to improve on an existing skill or how it will help your child to develop a new skill.

In all, this book includes 125 games you will be able to play with objects that you should already have on hand. As well, you do not need any special training or skills to effectively play these games with your baby. All you need is a desire to interact with your child and a encourage brain-developing play.

Some of these games are deceptively simple and are ones that you will intuitively play with your child such as singing or reciting a poem - but did you know that such activities help with brain development? Silberg explains how they do, and why they are important, both in terms of bonding with your child and in promoting brain development. Other games are more complex and will teach essential skills such as sharing and counting.

125 Brain Games for Toddlers and Twos is an essential reference book for anyone interested in understanding how a baby's brain develops and who is looking for simple techniques that they can employ to enhance their baby's brain development.

125 Brain Games for Toddlers and Twos is available from Read How You Want, an on-demand publisher that makes books available in a variety of formats including Braille, DAISY, and five different large print formats. This range of formats makes this, and other books, available not only to visually impaired individuals, but also anyone with a reading or physical disability that makes reading standard print books difficult.
