This year of your child's life will likely be one full of fun, as one-year-olds are curious about the world around them and are always eager to try new things. They are naturally excited about learning. One of the joys of having a young child in your home is that everything is play for them. Play is a child's work in that it helps them learn. While many adults think learning is something they should do to better themselves, for a one-year-old, learning can be fun, playful, engaging, and interesting.
