125 Brain Games for Toddlers and Twos by Jackie Silberg

Oh, my goodness!  This is a must have book for every mama with a busy toddler who seems to be getting into everything.  These are simple and fun games designed for ages 12-36 months.  Jackie breaks them down into 3 month increments and offers 15 different brain game activities to experience with your child.  These are invaluable for connecting with your little one.  Also, each game has a specific brain research tidbit.  So, if you are stuck with a whiny little toddler, start to play these games with them and watch their brain grow.

I played a game with Shrade where I hid a little stuffed animal and repeated a fun rhyme to find it.  This was great for language and spatial play.  He even hides stuffed animals by himself and says, "Where is it?"  We look all over until we find it and yell, "I found the _____________."  See, easy and fun!
