No wonder many parents, teachers and professors are concerned about kids' inability to communicate—to punctuate, spell and form coherent sentences! Within a few years, many of these teens will be parents, teaching the next generation. How can we transition from this text-messaging, abbreviation-loving generation to children with strong verbal skills that spill over into strong writing and reading skills?

Raising a Verbal Child by Diane McLoud is an idea-packed guide for parents, grandparents, babysitters, teachers and anyone involved in the lives of young children up to age seven. Learn from nine powerful chapters how you can provide a solid foundation, raising confident kids who communicate clearly. Then choose from 100-plus activities in bonus chapters to put what you've learned in motion. The child you love will benefit for life—guaranteed!

About the Author

About the Author

Diane McLoud is a teacher at heart. For 27 years she travelled with her husband, Jim, training teachers in churches throughout the United States. For 22 of those years she homeschooled her three sons. She has also been a popular speaker at women’s events, and for several years directed a large ministry to women.

Diane is the author of several books and magazine articles. Her books include 
Make It, Teach It: Creative Bible Teaching With Visuals You Can Make, Shaped by the Potter’s Hands, and That You May Grow: A Personal Spiritual Growth Journal.

Diane and Jim live in northeastern Ohio, where they are able to spend time with their sons and their two precious (and, as Diane says, “pink-loving!”) granddaughters.
