How Brains Develop

The brain grows at an amazing rate during development. At times during brain development, 250,000 neurons are added every minute! At birth, a person's brain will have almost all the neurons that it will ever have. The brain continues to grow for a few years after a person is born and by the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size.

The clear format and direct language take the guess work out of identifying developmental milestones and then lists playful activities that will appeal to both children and adults. Kathy’s book is a treasure trove of first-class resources that anyone can access in an instant. I can’t wait to share this classic with colleagues, parents, and family!
