Babywatching




An indispensable guide to the first twelve months of human life.

Desmond Morris combines his skills as a zoologist and manwatcher to take a close look at the most remarkable life-form ever to draw breath on this planet - the human baby. In a revealing portrait of life from the baby's point of view, Desmond Morris answers the questions that parents ask: How important is a mother to her baby? How well can babies hear, smell and taste? Why do babies cry? And what makes a baby smile? Do babies dream?

Babywatching is a classic to rank alongside Desmond Morris's world bestsellers, The Naked Ape and Manwatching.
