The Baby series includes planning for smooth care, activities for listening and talking by talking, using books, pictures and puppets, activities for physical development of the large muscles like legs, arms and back along with small muscles to help babies grasp, hold and pick up things. Creative Activates include art, blocks, dramatic play and music. And activities for learning from the World Around Them by the use of nature, the senses, size, shapes, colors and numbers.
