Since then, this has been my favourite baby shower gift for all my first time parent friends.
As more friends and family around me are getting themselves a baby of their own, I have made this book my go-to present for parents, even veteran parents with a new unit on the way (so spoiler alert, all friends reading this). As the premise of the book suggests, I will be mindful to whom I gift this book, as it does have a bit of a geekery slant to it to be approached with a bit of humor, but I'd like to think most who are friends of me must have that by default.
I originally bought this book as a present for two geek friends who were expecting and had this on their baby registry. I looked through the book before giving it to them. Having studied childhood developmental psychology, and am currently a personal trainer, I find a lot of value in this book, especially in an age of tablets and smartphones. This book is great for providing things baby owners can do with their babies to really help foster their cognitive development as well as their gross and fine motor functions, two things I worry is lacking with many children in this touchscreen age, during a formative time in their lifes. This also provides ideas to spend quality time with baby units, whether you own one yourself, or you're just borrowing for the afternoon. I also really like the age range of this book, going all the way to 3 years, so you get a lot of mileage with it.
I will now come prepared with things to do with them when one is handed off to me, and perhaps in the event I find myself with one of my own.
