Praise For How Babies Talk: The Magic and Mystery of Language in the First Three Years of Life…
“An in-depth study of language development during the first three years of life… The text is interspersed with activities readers can use to assess the specific development of their own children... useful and interesting to anyone involved with young children.”—Library Journal
“Crisp, clear, concise, often humorous. The contents are unusually substantive for a handbook targeted to parents, as the bibliography of scientific citations confirms. Important scientific results and their applications to daily life are highlighted as lessons under the heading ‘Scientific Sleuthing Pays Off’ and modified for use at home as ‘Try This’ exercises. A key resource for parenting collections.”—Booklist
