When you hold an infant, hold him not just with your body, but with your mind and heart.  --Magda Gerber

 

Observation of infant aged nine months

A nine-month-old in a RIE class in Silverlake, California, was observed playing with contented concentration for 19 minutes with a cotton scarf.  He did eveything you could think of with that cloth: shook it, squeezed it, flipped it, transferred it from hand to hand, pushed it, pulled it, put it on his foot, hand, head, in his mouth, rubbed himself with it, threw it away and fetched it back, scrubbed the floor and wall with it, sat on it, lay down on it, played peek-a-boo with it.  The scarf is truly an active-player toy with endless possibilities.
