My profession is in Child Development, particularly autism, and I have been searching for many years for an effective teaching tool for parents and students that is enjoyable and informative at the same time. I have even tried rather unsuccessfully to video typically developing infants and children myself to use as tools. Nothing can even remotely compare with this series of documentaries: "To Walk", "To Talk" and "To Think". I cannot wait for the release of The Baby Human II which includes "To Relate" and "To Belong".

Not only a great teaching tool, but a WONDERFUL baby shower gift!

This series of "to walk," "to think," and "to talk" is a great resource for child/human development. It portrays current research in a brief yet engaging manner. I use it in my Human Development course and students consistently find it helpful, informative, and interesting in demonstrating concepts and research that we're covering. The second series of "to feel," "to belong," and "to relate" is also a great one.

This show is absolutely fascinating. It is one of the most interesting and educational shows I've seen about childhood development. The show does a great job of showing various experiments being done at different universities around the country and then talking about the conclusions from the experiments.

The only reason I am not rating this a 5 is because they only included 3 episodes on this DVD. I am pretty sure that there are more episodes in the series. I'd love to see the whole series on DVD.

This DVD possesses some of the best editing and production that I have yet to see in a child development product.

Each of the sections (cognitive, physical, and language) is well researched. It's easy to understand and highly accessible.

Just as perfect for a personal library as it is for staff development.

True, this isn't a series for parents looking for advice (as one of the previous reviewers critiqued), but this is MY FAVORITE baby show and I am very glad that I can ditch my tapes now that it is out on DVD. There are a great many more episodes than those listed on this single DVD-- let's hope that this disk is profitable enough so that they decide to sell them all!

The episodes present classic psyc. experiments of developmental perception that are simply facinating. If you are taking an intro. to psycology course and all the dry textbook descriptions are putting you to sleep, get this DVD! Actually looking at the sweet little guys go through the set-ups will help you remember the different cognitive stages. They are just too cute! and it is neat to see what "tricks" you can play on your own little fellow.

I saw part of this series on cable and had to see more. Unfortunately they haven't come out with the full series on DVD yet - I think this is the only one available. It's extremely interesting viewing and shows a lot of research done with infants as support. I haven't seen any other programs like it.

A wonderfully insightful program whether you have kids or WERE one, which I think covers just about everyone. You learn not only about babies and toddlers but also about yourself and how you developed. My only complaint is that there are not enough episodes available for purchase.

I've watched the Baby Human in several occasions and have enjoyed every part of it. Its an excellent program that helps parents understand and learn about the wonderful human baby. If anyone is interested the company Express Media Canada, offers the second series.
