From Birth To First Words: Activities to Support Your Baby’s Language Learning Journey In the First Year Of Life
As you look down at your beautiful new baby, it can be easy to believe that learning about language isn’t something you need to consider in these early months. But nothing could be further from the truth! A baby’s ability to learn to say their first words is a complex skill to accomplish. Your baby’s brain is working actively every day to learn to talk and they rely on you to help them. That’s why along with loving and caring for your baby, you are also their first and most important teacher. The types of experiences you provide them with, how often you talk to them and the quality of talk you provide, all shapes how fast and how well your baby will develop language skills.
This book offers easy, language-boosting activities you can do at home with your baby for each week of their first year. No special toys. No extra time. No stress. And when your child does reach that remarkable milestone of saying their first word, you will know you helped them build a strong foundation in language so they can move forward in their next year as a confident communicator!
