Overview of baby development stages to understand the benefits of Quiet books

First, let's look at the four main areas of a child's development:
✔ Physical development
✔ Social and emotional development
✔ Cognitive or intellectual development
✔ Communication development ( speech and language)

Quiet books take care of development in all four areas by means of appropriately selected activities. Let's see some examples of the use of Quiet books.

Area 1 - physical development

Physical development is the child's ability to use the large and small muscles of the body and be aware of their own body, including physical fitness and coordination.

A newborn's first ability is to raise his head. Another milestone is lifting the body with your hands, then crawling and then walking. Other gross motor activities are:
standing, sitting, running, dancing, jumping, sliding, climbing, pushing, cycling, swimming, ball skills (throwing and catching, kicking), carrying something while walking etc.

How do Quiet books have a positive effect on gross motor development? Children change their sitting positions, move around the toy, crouch low, stand up etc.
OK, you probably know better ways to activate your child and engage the large muscles of the body while playing.

Quiet books win with a big advantage in the second competition: fine motor skills. It is usually the second stage of physical development after gross motor skills (e.g. walking) have been developed.

Examples of fine motor skills:
drawing, painting, writing, tying shoelaces, opening doors and drawers, using cutlery, brushing teeth, dressing and undressing, fastening buttons, turning objects in your hands , screwing on the lid of the jars, fastening, grabbing, turning the pages of books, folding, clapping, using scissors, pouring water, stacking blocks, etc.

Eye-hand coordination and motor coordination are the two main advantages of Quiet books.

With the help of Quiet books, the child can train buttoning, zipping, turning pages, grabbing, pulling, tying, adjusting things in a designated place, etc.

Virtually all Quiet books (except those designed solely for observation and detail detection) will help children develop fine motor skills.

Area 2 - social and emotional development

Emotions play a big role in a child's development. How well your baby learns to cope and express feelings depends on whether or not she makes a scene in the supermarket when you don't buy him a new toy. Or what her reaction will be if she doesn't get the Christmas gift she wants. And even later in life, when he grows up, he copes well with his emotions in stressful situations.

Emotions also affect self-image, identity, and the ability to interact and establish positive relationships with others.

Quiet books initiate the desire to improve, control emotions and behavior. They help to develop persistence in performing tasks of various difficulty levels.

The little challenges in silent books are the perfect playground for later "real problems".

Children are naturally inquisitive. Quiet books inspire children to be curious and explore every detail in the book. Encouraging children's curiosity is fundamental as it can broaden their empathy, increase achievement, and help strengthen relationships.

Area 3 - cognitive and intellectual development

The third area is learning and thinking, generating ideas, solving problems, making decisions, and understanding the world around you in general.

Some examples of cognitive abilities:
sorting shapes and colors, identifying body parts, engaging in simple games, arranging puzzles, playing pretend with animals, dolls etc, listening to a story with pictures, understanding the concepts of counting, time, causality, mass; executing three-part commands, pointing to interesting objects, finding missing toys in the right places, etc.

You can influence your children's cognitive development by learning shapes, objects, animals, colors, letters, numbers etc

Quiet books support cognitive skills as children solve problems, sort and match, compare, organize and ask questions.

They help your child understand cause and effect and distinguish the real world from fiction.

They help to increase the child's concentration, which is extremely important in the modern world.

Area 4- communication development (speech and language)

The fourth area is the child's ability to understand sounds and words, use speech and gestures.

The pace of a child's communication development in the first years is impressive. In the early months, newborns communicate through crying and silence. 18-month-old toddlers will use around 30-40 words, and 3-year-olds will create more complex sentences.

Although language development continues, it is much more difficult for children after the age of 5 to learn a new language.

There is also non-verbal communication and children learn through experience.

Examples of communication development are: saying"mom" and"dad" to a specific person. Also shaking your head at"no", listening when someone is talking to them, and understanding"no".

In addition, repeating different sounds, recognizing names, knowing your own name, responding to simple commands.

Later, children learn to use two linked words, repeat visible words in sentences, talk to each other while playing, and start using the plural.

The last step is to put together simple sentences, use pronouns and words to communicate your desires and needs, compose simple rhymes and songs, etc.

How can Quiet books help here?

Children develop communication by enriching their vocabulary when describing activities. They create fictional stories around a specific activity and add details. They can also practice communicating and following directions or simply asking for help if they need it.
