Written with concise descriptions and dozens of charts and graphs that will make it quick and easy to use for both fathers and mothers, this reassuring guide explains what to expect at every developmental stage between birth and age six. It then walks parents and caregivers through three dozen topics common in the first six years of life: everything from attention span and impulse control to death, divorce, and the red flags that signal reading readiness issues. This is a must-have reference for every nursery.
