Glenn Doman has demonstrated for a half-century that very young children are far more capable of learning than we ever imagined. He has taken his remarkable work-work that explores why children from birth to age six learn better and faster than older children do-and given it practical application. As the founder of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, he has created home programs that any parent can follow.

Cutting edge scientific research has shown that exposure to the right kind of environment during the first years of life actually affects the physical structure of a child's brain, vastly increasing the number of neuron branches--the "magic trees of the mind"--that help us to learn, think, and remember. At each stage of development, the brain's ability to gain new skills and process information is refined.As a leading researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, Marion Diamond has been a pioneer in this field of research. Now, Diamond and award-winning science writer Janet Hopson present a comprehensive enrichment program designed to help parents prepare their children for a lifetime of learning.
“This book has been on my mind for many years. My daughter lost oxygen at birth and had to be placed in intensive care. By working with her to help her excel intellectually and physically, I have learned that babies and toddlers can absorb far greater knowledge and understanding than many of us realize. Indeed, learning does begin in infancy and we, as parents, can greatly enhance this process. My baby experienced birth trauma, but the opportunities are there whether your child has trauma or has a completely normal birth. All the unbounded possibilities exist through teaching your little one the joy of learning as a lifelong habit. This book illustrates what can be done.”

The daily lessons provided in this book may be just what you and your child have been waiting for.
