Format: Paperback
I've really enjoyed reading this book, and I've told several other "Mom" friends about it also. The book is very informative and an easy read, I particularly enjoyed the section on diet and keeping your child in a "clean living" environment (as in pesticide and solvent free, etc.). However, several of the things the author (a doctor) suggests are to advanced for the age range he places them in, or are extremely difficult to achieve. The author does a wonderful job explaining how to create/play games with your infant or toddler, but often times the games are simply to abstract for small child or especially a 6-18 month old baby. For example, one of the games suggested consists of flashcards with colored shapes on them to help your child with memory, thus improving math skills. This may be great for an older child, but for an infant? Try giving a teething infant a flashcard and you will quickly see that it goes in their mouth and not into the memory part of their brain as the book implies. As for giving a 16 month old flashcards; unless your child is sedentary, don't expect them to sit down and really attempt to study a card with a triangle on it. The other aspects of the book I found unrealistic came from the diet and vitamin suggestions and the guidelines on certain types of plastics. While the book was excellent at discussing the need for organic, natural, and pesticide free foods, don't expect to follow the doctor's diet list with ease. Any parent knows that things like Kidney Beans and Pumkin Seeds aren't usually baby's favorite meal. Lastly, this books cautions greatly about the hazards of a certain type of plastic (not BPA) that is often found in MOST toys. Is it great to be aware of this type of plastic: YES.Read more ›

I carefully followed many suggestions in this book and have successfully raised a VERY bright boy. How much is nature vs. nurture? Unknown. How much is attributable to involved parenting (involved parents raise smarter kids, but is it because they read more? or because they care more?)? Again, unknown. But in a world that is filling up with children with emotional problems, brain miswiring, allergies, and mysterious illnesses, my child is smart, loving, healthy, social, drug-free, and free of ADHD. Personally I attribute this to breast-feeding, avoidance of BPA (and other toxins), focusing on good nutrition (lots of organics), carefully monitored tv viewing (i.e., mostly educational, commercial-free programming), and lots and lots of talking, reading, and game playing. This book helped me start my child off right, and I will always be grateful to its author.

I bought this book before I had my first child two years ago. I have since reread it several times and I return to it once every few months for suggestions on what I can continue to do to foster brain development with my child. I have since had a new baby and have found myself refering to it again and again.

The book is layed out in a easy to read format and allows for you to quickly find activities that you can implement in all stages of your childs life. I have seen some other reviews that state that several activities are unrealistic for the age of the child. I found in my experience with my son they worked great. Sometimes I would try it and he wouldn't quite get it so I would return to it a few weeks later and he almost always picked it right up with in a matter of weeks.

I love how this book teaches you about how the brain is formed and what things we can do with nutrition as parents to help foster a healthier brain. He covered topics like the dangers of BPA bottles back before the debate even hit the main stream. I feel reading this book gave me a clear picture of how truly amazing childrens brains are and some very real ways to help foster a better brain. I would recommend this to any parent!

I have to admit that I didn't actually ready the whole book. I was too turned off by the sensationalism and attempts at creating unrealistic expectations. I should've known better by the tag line "Raise IQ by up to 30 points..." ...just false promises. The book "Bright from the Start" has basically the same information, but isn't written in the form of an infomercial. It too talks about the potential to raise your child's IQ but it focuses on the actual studies and is much more realistic. I found "Bright from the Start" very helpful in understanding how a child's mind works so I understand "why" a child under 2 shouldn't watch tv, not just that they shouldn't, for example. Other books I recommend: Happiest Baby on the Block and Nurture Shock. Must reads!!!

I read this book after reading Dr Perlmutter's Grain Brain. As a mum, I was specifically interested in his nutrition recommendations for young children. Unfortunately,it seems that Dr Perlmutter had not yet drawn his conclusions about the problems with grains at the time this book was published. You will NOT find nutrition info here that is in line with Grain Brain, and some of it does not seem up-to-date (for example the recommendation to give children low fat dairy products). Other than that, this was a good read. The suggested games are particularly interesting.
