How your child benefits from play BabyCenter: "Play is the business of childhood, allowing your child free rein to experiment with the world around him and the emotional world inside him, says Linda Acredolo, professor of psychology at the University of California at Davis and coauthor of Baby Signs: How to Talk With Your Baby Before Your Baby Can Talk and Baby Minds: Brain-Building Games Your Baby Will Love.

Here are some of the things your child is experiencing and learning, along with ideas on how you can help boost the benefits of his play."
