Bayar, the baby of the Mongolian steppes, is visited by one of the family roosters in Babies. Gopnik writes in the Times, “We don’t need to make babies brighter because they are already as intelligent as they can be. Instead, we need to give them rich surroundings that they can explore. And the new research shows that, above all, babies are learning about, and from, the people who surround them. It’s ironic that as a society we spend millions on useless ‘educational’ enhancements for babies but very little to support the careers who make a difference.” For example, the average preschool teacher makes $29,000 per year.
