Talking Baby: Helping Your Child Discover Language
Language is the tool we need for social interaction and early language skills underpin early academic success. 'Talking Baby' covers how a young child learns language and how those around the child assist this process through their interaction. Written for a general readership, the book progresses developmentally through the first three years, then to specific areas of language, such as meaning and grammar and how these are expressed in the language of young children. ‘More to Say’ and ‘Talking & Reading Times’ sections offer practical suggestions and a final chapter outlines what can go wrong and when to seek help.
