Your Baby is Speaking to You: a Visual Guide to the Amazing Behaviors of your Newborn and Growing Baby, by Dr. J. Kevin Nugent, is also one of my favorite parenting books for new families.
The world renowned paediatrician and author, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton , stated it so exquisitely when he wrote, "No other book so beautifully captures and decodes the astonishing ways babies 'speak' to us."
Dr. Kevin Nugent , and acclaimed photographer Abelardo Morell , capture the amazingly precocious communications strategies babies demonstrate from the moment they are born. This book fully illustrates the full range of infant behaviors, and is supported by the latest research. Thus, providing a new perspective on infant communication.
