    I feel that this is a lovely book for anyone coming into contact with babies and small children. I hadn't realised before reading this book that babies are immediately communicating and interacting with their environment from birth. This book enables people to understand what a baby is communicating, and how to manipulate a babies environment to give it the best comfort. This book is a real gem.

    What a fantastic insite into a baby's way of thinking.

    As a new mum this book has enlightened me. I have tried suggestions in the book on things to do with my baby and they work. She now imitates me. I also can read her body language.

    The pictures are excellent. I have tried the suggestions in how to settle my baby and it works. TRUST me it does. Baby is sleeping as I type.

    I also ordered the suggested acompanyment baby books and baby loves them and the mobile that comes with them.

    Even my Health visitor was engrossed. Top Marks.....

    This book was a real delight. We bought it a couple of months before our first child arrived, and found it entertaining and informative. I learned a lot about what to expect. When our son was born, we had a head-start in understanding his reactions and expressions. A few weeks later, I read through it again to refresh my memory, and confirmed my impression that it was both accurate and helpful.

    The really great thing about the book is that they have concentrated on providing *lots* of useful images to illustrate in detail what they are writing about.

    It's ever-so-slightly irritating that the authors insist on refering to babies as 'she' throughout the book. I suppose that there is no answer to this old he/she problem, but it is more of a distraction than 'he' would have been, and therefore makes the text less enjoyable to read.

    From details in the text, it's clear that this book is written by and for British people, but the general lessons to be learned about communicating with children are certainly international.

    Do buy this book if you are expecting your first child. Read it before the birth because you may not have time or energy just after.

    It's great. More books should be like this.
