If you’re too busy running after your little one to relax and enjoy a good book this summer, why not watch an amazing documentary series instead? The Beginning of Lifeis a ground-breaking series now streaming on Netflix, which examines the crucial impact of a child’s early environment on his or her cognitive, social and emotional development. Exquisitely shot and hopeful-without-being-sugary, the series focuses on the day-to-day lives of babies and parents and on the opportunities for learning in even the most mundane activities. This series (based on the movie of the same name) is a must watch for any new parent or parent-to-be.
