"Packed with wonderful 'retro' activities and based on modern-day research, Dr Zachry shares how to avoid 'baby product' hazards by sticking with the tried-and-true, fun, sensory-motor activities that babies really need. A must-read guide for the discerning parent!" --Barbara A. Smith, MS, OTR/L, author of From Rattles to Writing; A Parent's Guide to Hand Skills

"This is a great book for any parent, but particularly for those who want to minimize the high-tech, often unnecessary, paraphernalia being pushed these days! Parents, you will appreciate the creative ideas for entertaining your baby and encouraging your baby's development." --Rachel Y. Moon, MD, FAAP, professor of pediatrics, George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Children's National Medical Center; editor in chief, Sleep: What Every Parent Needs to Know; chairperson, American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

"It's great to see someone take notice of the wonderful way that experiences while awake in prone help the infant learn essential motor skills and do not require special expensive equipment. In addition, parents can be their child's first teachers of exploration, communication, social interaction, and sensory and manipulation skill using inexpensive toys. Many parents will learn that there are simple, easy ways to promote a baby's development." --Michael E. Msall, MD, FAAP, FAACPDM professor of pediatrics, University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, and co-chair, Medical Round Table
