That being said, there are some drawbacks to be noted. The first is the author herself admits to a strong bias in some areas, which needs to be corrected for by the reader when approaching the book. The second is illustrated in Chapter 5 on language acquisition. She highlights the landmark Hart and Risley study but fails to mention that this work is over 15 years old. Since that time other researchers have shown that the sheer quantity of language the child is exposed to is apparently not the dominant factor in language acquisition. For example, the speed and amount of response to the baby's vocalization is also key. While Ms. Berman briefly touches on this, her emphasis on language quantity is misplaced and speaks to her resources being somewhat outdated.
The third drawback is more subtle and is certainly not confined to Ms. Berman's work. As highlighted in the excellent book, "Nurture Shock" by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman, a summary of the current research indicates that intervention in the world of children is a deeply complex undertaking.Read more ›
Now that I know that, I am reading to all my kids a lot more so I really appreciated her recommended book list in the reading chapter. I have been so tired of reading the same books and she got me discovering a bunch of new ones I never even heard of. Her list is really comprehensive and divided by topics (cloth books, ABC, potty training, big bed, animals, starting preschool, etc.).
In the main chapters, Dr. Berman covers twelve different topics:
Responding to Cues
Creating Security and Predictability
Baby Sign Language
Feeding and Nutrition
In the additional chapters she also covers:
She also includes all these "From the Experts" boxes from some of my favorite books and experts like: Dr. Karp, Dr. Sears, Positive Discipline, Love & Logic, Super Baby Foods, Signing Time, and Sleepy Planet. I am so glad I got this book.
