Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Of particular interest to new parents will be this imagined "diary" in which Stern ( The First Relationship ), father of five and psychiatry professor at Cornell University Medical Center, traces the development of baby Joey from infancy to about four years of age. In prose that characterizes Joey's responses to his world (for instance, the use of "I" is reserved until Joey is four and a half months), Stern illuminates the development of volition, memory and a sense of self as they take place in five overlapping "worlds of experience." The brief diary entries are expanded in descriptive sections in which Stern interprets an infant's reaction to sensory and emotional experiences; in these direct, informative accounts the baby is referred to as "she." An inventive and highly accessible approach to an endlessly absorbing subject. 25,000 first printing; $25,000 ad/promo .

From Library Journal

This is the imaginary diary of a child from the age of six weeks to four years, based on the experience and research of Stern, a professor of psychology and psychiatry. The reader is drawn from the "world of experience" to the "world of stories" through poetry and prosaic imagery describing simple events in the child's life, both in the child's voice and in explanatory text. While perhaps most suitable as a creative gift to new parents, this possibly may be a useful addition to the psychology collection in academic and larger public libraries.

Format: Paperback
Daniel Stern is a world expert on infant development and
psychiatry, as well as an iconoclastic and creative theorist.
This book is a lucid and poetic presentation of his theories,
accessible to the layman and full of treasures for the
professional. It is the form of a set of small vignettes from
significant stages in the devellopment of a little boy, Joey.
The poetry is necessary because much of the concepts refer to
pre-verbal stages of development, and it works very well. This
book is a good companion read to _The interpersonal world of
the infant_ which presents the ideas from a technical point
of view, with the supporting scientific evidence.

Dr. Stern's prose is beautiful. He presents, in near poetry-format, a fascinating look into the mind of an infant. Starting at 4 weeks and continuing to 4 years, he brings you into the world of a child. I couldn't put this book down! (And this is notable, given that I am a new Mom and have more than enough to do!)

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book. It tells the story of what life is like from birth to age 4 from the point of view of the child. I give it as a gift to every new parent I know because I believe that the most important quality in a parent is empathy -- the capacity to understand the inner experience of their child. It is written by a highly respected researcher on child development and is also useful for graduate students in psychology to get a handle on difficult concepts in a pleasurable way.

Format: Paperback
"Diary of a Baby" provides an adorable synopsis of significant developmental leaps that a baby goes through from six weeks until four years of age. Writing from an infant's point of view, Stern takes the reader through a journey of what a baby sees, feels, and experiences. The book is concise at 165 pages, and both easy and fun to read. Stern studied medicine at Harvard University and for more than thirty years worked in research and private practice focusing to the observation of infants. He is also the father of five children, and his personal experiences directly influenced this book. A noted author, professor, researcher, and therapist, Stern weaves together facts derived from infant research, the undeniable importance of emotional bonding as evidenced in the clinic setting, and a creative writing style. The result is a book that gives a quick yet layered understanding of baby at six weeks, four and a half months, twelve months, twenty months, and four years. I teach babies to master their motor skills and found this reading essential, and now I rate this as a "must read" on my parenting blog!

As a pediatrician, I love this little book and have given it to all my friends when they had their first baby. Dr. Stern is a recognized expert on early childhood development and teaches at Cornell. In this book he has done something quite unusual. He succeeded in weaving the pearls from his academic work into a delightful, readable book that any interested person can enjoy. This book makes it fun to understand your child better.

This book is based on most serious psychological research and reflects the knowledge we at the moment have about how babies percieve and experiences their environment. A book I recommend for all becoming parents, and it ought to be read before the child is borne. It explains how, and why the relational environment is of paramount importance for the psychological developement of all children. Do you want your child to have a psychologically sound developement? Then read this book!

I give the book to every new parent or parents to be. It gives them a very easy to read and understandable view, from the baby's perspective, of what's going on developmentally during the first couple years of birth. An excellent read for all parents!!!

Format: Paperback
An engaging read about how a doctor thinks a baby comprehends things. The parents call the little one 'Pumpkin'. Mentions things that done repeatedly help the child learn, such as the sound of the parent's car pulling into the drive let's the child know daddy is home. Mentions the child's comprehension of movement as its eyes follow light dancing along the wall.

Ultimately it is difficult to know the particulars but this gives a thinking person cause to consider their child's future.
