- Book Intro
These days, the market is flooded with numerous prenatal education methods as its importance is on the rise. But nobody can be sure which method is the best. Scientifically, it's not easy to quantify the effect that solving math problems has on the development of a fetus' brain or that of listening to English or classical music on a child's intelligence and personality. But one thing for sure is that the more emotionally stable the parents are, the more likely the child will have peaceful mind and a nice personality.
Mommy's Voice 5 Minutes a Day started from exactly these two points, "emotionally stable parents" and "children with healthy minds." The most common form of prenatal education is "children's stories spoken in mom's voice." However, to your disappointment, most of the stories are shortened versions of classic children's stories or restructured didactic stories you've heard of somewhere. The focus is always only on stimulating the fetus' brain with the mother's voice.
To overcome this limitation, Mommy's Voice 5 Minutes a Day is composed of "children's stories for mom" and "children's stories" for moms to tell to an unborn child. In particular, the ten creative children's stories written by the author are special in that they allow mom and child to experience various feelings and emotions. The author wanted to write children's stories that could be fun, moving and not limited to the function of "prenatal" education. Through these children's stories, he quietly whispers into our ears the hope and anticipation with which the child waits for the world.
