Editorial Reviews

Review

"Experimenting with Babies is a wonderful book, giving parents a hands-on way to understand their baby's emerging mind.  The experiments are easy, fun, and nicely annotated with the real science behind them.  What a fabulous way for parents to get to know their new child!"
—Lise Eliot, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University and author of What's Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life

“With the marketplace urging parents to buy all manner of things to make their babies ‘smart,’ Gallagher’s book offers parents a view based in science on how much babies really know and figure out on their own.  Parents will have fun with this book and gain new respect and awe for their babies’ amazing capabilities.”
—Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D., H. Rodney Sharp Professor, University of Delaware and coauthor of How Babies Talk, Einstein Never Used Flash Cards, and a Mandate for Playful Learning in Preschool

Format: Paperback
Book emphasizes cognitive and behavioral tests that are performed non invasively. There is no information about surgical experiments intended to transform the baby into a post technological horrorbeast capable of dominating the globe. Perhaps this gap will be addressed by a sequel. In any case, this is acceptable if you recognize the inherent limitations of the content.

I started buying this book for friends and family who are reproducing or who have recently reproduced, mainly because the title makes me giggle and the reviews are good. Turns out that it is like crack for new parents who are already fascinated by every burp, wiggle, and wide-eyed blink that emerges from their offspring. It gives them more to do with the infant than just stare at it and make odd, high-pitched sounds. The only drawback is when they want to tell you all about the results of the experiments as if I have read the book and know what they are talking about. They seem so excited about it that I don't want to burst their bubble, so I nod and smile and think about how much sleep I got the night before, and how I went to see a movie at a theater without weeks of planning. Results may vary.

Bought this for a friend of mine who's expecting. This book is great - it presents information from various scientific studies in a way that's digestible and entertaining, while showing you how to re-produce those same experiments in your own home.
I like that the experiments are categorized by the age range of the child (e.g., 0-1 month) and difficulty level of the experiment. I also like how each chapter is separated into clear, easy-to-follow sections (e.g., "The Hypothesis" and "The Takeaway").

Gave this for a baby shower gift to a friend who is a bit of a science nerd. She and her husband are enjoying bonding with their baby while "experimenting" with the baby. The experiments are easy to do and there are different experiments to perform as the baby grows

Bought this book for my brother who just had a kid. Read a couple entries and was surprised about the actual depth of the experiments. You will definitely learn a ton from reading this.

A lot of knowledge about your child's development can be gained through the proposed experiments. It's all delivered in a fun fashion with a fair bit of humor.

I bought this for my husband when we found out we were expecting. He's a scientist and thinks the book is really cute and can't wait to try the experiments on our baby! :-)
