Our customer reviews

If you are after a quick summary of development or a week by week account of how your baby is growing, look elsewhere! This book is an in-depth look at each aspect of brain development from conception to 5 years of age. Brilliantly written, it has enough detail to keep the most scientific minded parent interested while still being easy to read for those that haven\'t had any anatomy exposure at all. The Author cites many studies from around the world in an unbiased way rather than just presenting her own opinion on brain development. Highly recommended for all parents that are interested in how genetics, their own behaviour and the environment that they create can effect the future for their children.show more
