Item Description...
Together, the pictures and words of "You Are My World" lend a whole new meaning to the phrase "baby talk." By pairing lovely black-and-white photographs of infants with captions that reflect reality as seen through their newborn eyes, the book celebrates the continually miraculous interaction that occurs between babies and the most significant people in their young lives--their mothers and fathers.
Children's minds are molded by experience, and science tells us that the way a parent touches, holds, looks at, and responds to a baby has a lifelong impact on the way that this brand-new person will come to see the world and his or her place within it. "You Are My World" gratefully acknowledges the profoundly shaping influence that a parent's love and attention have on a baby's mental and emotional development.
"Your love is my first teacher," says one of the adorable infants portrayed here. Like each of the book's captions, this simple but poetic statement captures and illuminates every baby's desire for, receptivity to, and sheer delight in a parent's love. Featuring a die-cut frame in which parents can place a photo of their own child, "You Are My World" will become a treasured family keepsake. ""You Are My World" ... evokes the powerful reality of how the parent-infant relationship sculpts the minds and brains of our children. Amy Hatkoff has offered us an exquisite tour of the intimate human connections ... from which our deepest sense of self emerges. What a wonder-filled gift to help all parents ... Bravo "

" "" "
""You Are My World" captures the subtle nonverbal behaviors of babies that express a far wider range of emotional experience than is often recognized or responded to. The photographs ... convey the power and importance of nonverbal communication and bring us closer to the best in humans and in ourselves."

""You Are My World" should be mandatory reading for every parent. Parents new and seasoned cannot afford not to read this book. If every family began a tradition by passing this book on to future generations, just think of all the happy and healthy children in our world You Are My World is BRILLIANT Kudos "
Ross Ellis

" This book is a treasure. It is a wonderful, concise treatise on the abilities of the newborn. It supercedes Ashley Montague and Frederick LeBoyer and their approach. It brings you right into the heart of the newborn, giving them a strong and clear voice of what it takes to become the 'possible human.' A remarkable, beautiful piece of work."
Barbara Harper
Founder /Director, Waterbirth International
""You Are My" "World" is a wonderful resource for displaying parental empathy. The value and beauty of nurturing children is so eloquently displayed in this book. I highly recommend it as a resource for parents and parent educators."

" "
""You Are My World" is a brilliant piece of work."
Peggy Kaufman

"Like the babies it features, this little book is a mini-miracle. One part information, one part inspiration, one part love, Hatkoff's "You Are My World" is a gift of a book ... It is a spoonful of sugar helping state-of-the-science knowledge go down ever so smoothly, energizing grown-ups for the good responsive care that all little ones need."

You are my World  Nov 23, 2008
This is a great product to use as a baby shower gift or celebration of a birth gift. You can put the new baby's picture on the inside of the back cover. My 6 month old niece loves her book.
Ordinary Acts of Parenting  Oct 11, 2008
Having both professional and personal experience with adoption of children with attachment injuries, this book touches my heart. Prevention is worth a zillion hours of therapy later. The book does not address it directly, but another underlying message is that this sort of intentional parenting, with acknowledgement of the parent's importance, produces extraordinary results in not only the developing mind, but also in the developing parent.
great  Mar 26, 2008
The book in great words expresses what a parent is in the eye of a child, how the child is able to grow always knowing that their parent is there to protect and love the child.
Baby Pictures, Developmental Wisdom  Nov 17, 2007
Amy Hatkoff has done a great job of integrating a scrapbook of pictorial cuties with psychological milestones. The visceral response is one of "Ohhhh..." A little gem of a book and a very suitable stocking gift for anyone expecting a larger bundle of joy. I'm also appreciative of the fact that she has both sexes nurturing infants.
The greatest book for new parents ever!  May 18, 2007
This book is soo... good I am amazed it isn't a best seller or winning every award in baby books!. I just had a baby and this book made me evokes the feeling I have for my baby/now toddler that I could never express, but felt it so strongly!!. I feel I am quite artistic as I am a writer of pop songsBlue Guitar...but this book touches your heart in some precious way I could never imagine. I love this book and send it to all my friends having babies! Amy.. thank you WOW!
