This is an excellent series that looks at several aspects of infant development: bonding, growth, movement, eating and language. It introduces us to 4 babies and then shows us the research that was done to measure these areas of development. A common research question is the extent to which infants are born with the capacity for development in these areas and how parents can enhance development. It also speaks to the prenatal care that can promote development. Meeting the families keeps the studies and research conclusions from being dry. The videos and measurements sharpened the viewers' attention to what was happening and showed us how very subtle are the signs of development. Hearing the scientists' observations and conclusions while also seeing the personal lives of the babies made for the most meaningful understanding of the content.
