This synthesis of studies of newborns and older babies seeks to satisfy our curiosity about how the world looks, sounds, tastes, and smells during the first year or two of life. The authors, a science writer and a child psychologist, provide a fascinating and informative look at the world of the infant. Any idea that the womb is a warm, quiet place is quickly dispelled: it is noisy, cramped, and turbulent. Once born, babies may appear mostly to sleep during the first weeks of life, but they are busy integrating and processing information about the world. Development of the senses and emotions are described in detail, with notes footnotes, and representative references abounding. Most suitable for larger collections. Jodith Janes, Univ. Hospitals of Cleveland Lib.
