Active Baby, Healthy Brain: 135 Fun Exercises and Activities to Maximize Your Child's Brain Development from Birth Through Age 5 1/2
Babies crave more than a meal and a cuddle. They are eager, voracious learners and many new parents are just as enthusiastic to start homeschooling their baby, but don't know where to start.

A Delightfully Practical Handbook
Active Baby, Healthy Brain is the most practical handbook for all parents enthralled with every aspect of their baby's intellectual and physical development. It is simple and to the point, with ideas that are quick and easy to implement.

135 Exercises, Activities, and Massages
Each activity is presented with detailed, step-by-step instructions, and the appealing illustrations help to make everything crystal clear. And while the overall tone is one of having fun with your baby - and you will - the author makes sure you understand the crucial connections between the activities and the development of your baby's body and brain. You'll also learn how to incorporate toys, music, and games in your baby's day.

10 Minutes A Day
Active Baby, Healthy Brain is divided into eight specific, age-appropriate sections ranging from newborn to age five-and-a-half. Busy parents will cheer when they hear that no single activity takes more than two minutes, and all that's required is ten minutes a day. How easy is that?

Includes activities for:
  • Balance
  • Cross-pattern movement

  • Active Baby Ideas by Spell Outloud

    review by Spell Outloud

    "I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book is a reference book of ideas. This made it easy to read and easy to fit into my busy schedule. One thing I learned was how important movement is in the development of pathways in a young child's brain. I knew movement was important, but this book opened up my eyes to many more movement possibilities. I was able to use activities in this book for three of my children--- ages 7 months to 4 years old. I love it when I can use something for more than one kid or when it is useful for a long period of time."

    Just okay

    I could see this being helpful for the less creative in need of exercise for their kids but I felt like this was just a waste Most of the stuff in here is just regular day to day stuff we do.

    Great reference for parents!

    This is a must have for all parents! A great guide to help parents utilize their child’s brain and reach their full potential. You will no doubt reread this book over and over!


    I'm so excited that this book is still apart of the curriculum. I bought it when my son was 1 (2018) and am now using it for my two month old. I love all of the fun ideas that I wouldn't have thought of doing with her. In, addition to how quick and easy they are.

    Really Helped With Our Bonding!

    I have now used the exercises in this book for two kids and absolutely love them! It helped my youngest with some obvious hip problems and most importantly has helped me to bond with both infants!!!

    Active Baby Healthy Brain

    I began Active Baby Healthy Brain when my daughter was maybe 18 months old. The book covers infanthood to 5 1/2 years, and she's three now, so we still have a ways we could go with this book. The longevity of it makes the price a steal. The book discusses the mind-body learning connection, and is full of various exercises, massages, activities and movements to facilitate healthy growth in your little one. Mine is the most athletic of my three already, and maybe this book helped with that. Doing the activities never felt like a strange "school routine" - we just incorporated them into play-and-tickle time!
