For 11 years, Beyond Baby Talk, has been the only book parents need to guide their children in learning effective communication skills – and now it is fully updated and revised. Authors Kenn Apel and Julie Masterson, experts in child language, take the mystery out of the developmental process with updated education research, simple milestones parents can look for and easy activities to build strong language skills. The subjects covered in Beyond Baby Talk are:
- Enhancing a child’s literacy skills for improved spelling, reading and writing abilities.
- Understanding and navigating how TV and texting may impact language development.
- Recognizing signs of language and literacy progress problems – and knowing when to seek professional help.
- Being aware of common language myths, fads and scams.
I was able to read an advanced copy and the best part about this whole book is that there is a section on multiples. Let’s face it, when it comes to anything with multiples, it’s just not the same as having a singleton. Additionally, I really enjoyed all of the sections on media and the influence that they have on our kiddos language development. It covers TV, texting and computer usage.
This book is such an amazing resource and should really be owned by every parent. There are so many great takeaways from this book, you’ll use it the entire first five years of your kiddos lives.
