While we all know that babies respond to loving, playful interaction, it is not commonly understood how much they communicate and relate to us and to each other with their movements. Educators and teachers in early childhood development will refer to this book often; parents and carers of small infants will find this book a rich source of information about the ways in which babies from birth to six months move, develop, and express their needs.

A hands-on guide for working with babies on their physical, social, and cognitive development written by seasoned somatics practitioner Beverly Stokes, Your Self-Motivated Baby encourages caregivers to interact with children for mutual benefit. The interaction builds bonding and subtly encourages steady development for the infant. Atlthough babies at this age may seem to be largely immobile and unresponsive beings, Stokes makes it clear that they are giving cues for caregiver participation early on.

BEVERLY STOKES, CMA, RSME, is the founder and director of the Center for Experiential Learning established in 1985. A Certified Movement Analyst and registered Somatic Movement Educator, she is acknowledged as a leader in the field of baby movement development and nonverbal communication, having worked with babies and their families for more than 20 years. She leads workshops throughout the United States and Canada.
