    Great Book

    Her conversational style is very clear and readable. It appears well-researched and scientifically sound. If you're working with a child with language problems, or if you're just curious, read this!

    A must have!

    This is a great, easy-to-read/understand, & thorough collection of information regarding childhood speech and language development. I am an elementary school teacher and often lend this book out as a resource to parents. This is a good reference book for parents of young children.
