Format: Paperback
We liked this book, but found it overrated. There are some good ideas and it has a very high gloss, professional format. However, it is by far not the best activity book for toddlers and has some overly obvious information and activities, which most parents initiate instinctively with their children and without the help of a book. The Toddlers Busy Book, for example, has given us a much better range of ideas.

This book is very informative for a first time mother who run out of idea of what to play with her baby !
It shows you different games according to your child's age with colorful picture demonstration. It also introduce different type of games for different stimulation. Very creative and simple. It won't require you to buy expensive acessories. It teaches you to turn a simple cup to a wonderful, educational, stimulative toy.
I just love it!

Format: Paperback
Filled to the brim with lively, full-color photographs, this book will teach you not only how to play, but why children need to play. The activities presented are for the 12-month to 30-month age bracket and have games for developing language, motor, and sensory skills. There are art, sports, and imagination activities that will be fun for both you and your child to get involved in. An added bonus is that my 30-month old daughter loves to look at the pictures of kids that are on almost every page and she will "read" along with me as I sing some of the fingerplay songs that are shown. You can't go wrong with this jam-packed book for games that will occupy and educate your child!

This book has terrific fun ideas for toddlers. It has many of the rhymes and songs that every child (and parent!) should know. We consider ourselves remedial parents and found this book to be quite helpful! Now we're WOWWING other parents with our rendition of "The Noble Duke of York."

Format: Paperback
This book is full of great ideas! Your toddler will even like to look at the book while you get ideas for games to play with them. There are a lot of pictures of children and their parents playing. My daughter loves to look at them. It teaches many songs and hand/body motions to go with them. My daughter loves these and I am sure your child will also. You will not be disappointed with this one!

Format: Paperback
This book was alright, but a lot of the ideas were sort of no brainers. There were a few new things that I never thought about, but a lot of it is stuff that is in magazines, books and things that are just basic common sense. The pictures in the book are of fabulous quality and there are some great songs and fingerplays in the book.

This book is excellent. It is filled with some great games, songs and finger-rhymes. There are plenty of things you can do with what you have around the house.
I have an active 16-month old son and I try to pick a new thing every couple days for us to do together. It's a great book!

Format: Paperback
These are great books for first time parents and dads. (Moms, you probably do most of these things with your baby by instinct). But I love them (we have toddler play and baby play) because it give me clear ideas as to how to play with my daughter on those days when I feel like I just don't have a clue. My husband thinks it is fun to pick a new activity each weekend to try with our daughter--it has really helped them to bond.
