This book provides useful suggestions on how to engage infants and toddlers in conversation during a parent's day to day activities. It also provides guidelines for introducing children to books and to maintain their interest in word discovery through literature, songs and rhymes. There is a wonderful chapter for parents to make their own inexpensive but imaginative toys. I had already read several books on children's linguistic development before buying this one, so I was disappointed with the redundant information I found in this book and was a little surprised to discover the authors using a very straight-forward and simple writing style. However, when I finally read the back cover of the book, I realize they intended the audience to be 'low literacy parents and parents for whom English is a second language'. I actually admire their down-to-earth approach compared to the high-jargoned variety of books that fill the bookstores. This book will be useful for daycare providers who need ideas to communicate to parents in an effective manner.
