Explains how children develop from squalling babies into walking, talking toddlers. This book shows how a child\'s mind develops before the age of three, tapping into a parent\'s wonder at the processes of psychological development in a child-centered way.
For Charles Fernyhough, the birth of his daughter Athena was an opportunity to re-evaluate much of what he had learned as a researcher in developmental psychology. Drawing on the detailed notes he made during her infancy, Fernyhough uses Athena's story to explain how a child's mind develops before the age of three, tapping into a parent's wonder at the processes of psychological development in an engaging, child-centered way. It is written with a father's tenderness and a novelist's empathy and style.
