5.0 out of 5 stars Good for parents too 17 Mar 2012
By Clare C
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a parent with a 2 year old who is not yet talking. Although the book is intended for childcare professionals, as a full time mum I consider myself to be a childcare professional!! I have found the chapters on encouraging the early stages of communication really useful, and am hoping to find the later chapters on developing conversations with children useful once we have got past the first words stages. Its made me a lot more confident about how to help my child learn to talk, so definitely worth the money.

I ordered Learning Language and Loving It and It Takes Two to Talk. I love both books and found them very useful. My 3 year old son's speech therapist spoke highly of the Hanen method and recommeded that I read It Takes Two to Talk. I am so glad, however, that I ordered both books because I found the more extensive discussion in Learning Language and Loving It to be more useful.

Learning Language and Loving it is directed to preschool teachers who are interested in supporting the language development of their students, while It Takes Two to Talk is focused on parents. However, Learning Language and Loving It contains most of the information included in It Takes to To Talk and much much more! An important part of learning to talk is speaking with one's peers and for speech delayed children this can be very difficult. Learning Language and Loving It gives tips on fostering peer interaction and has an extensive discussion on this topic. The book also includes information on different speaking styles of children, the stages of early speech development and how to help children best navigate through those stages. It includes useful information for more stages of speech development than It Takes Two to Talk (It takes Two focuses on the earliest stages including language discovers, early communicators, first words users, and combiners, while Learning Language expands the discussion to include early sentence users and later sentence users).

I have spent the better part of two years looking for a guide just like this one! I highly recommend it for both parents and teachers of speech delayed children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference 18 July 2013

A bit pricey, but it's an invaluable source, both for teacher and for parents. I am often loaning this to the parents of my preschool class to borrow, and they all come back with the same comment....."wow! What a tremendous book, where can I order one for my own?"
5.0 out of 5 stars Learning Language and Loving It 15 July 2014
By Jane Jones - Published on Amazon.com
About ten years ago I received a copy of Learning Languages and Loving It from a friend. As an early childhood educator, I have used it many times to add new activities and in planning lessons for the preschool children in my classes over the years. What I like about it is the wonderful pictures of children having fun, how it explains concepts and is written in a manner that parents and professional educators can find it enlightening when working with preschool children. I have loaned it to other teachers and parents of preschool children, who all found it helpful.

It's a pretty good book. It provides some pretty helpful tips but for the most part it seems like common knowledge type stuff.
The product came in fast and for a WAY cheaper price than if i bought this at the book store.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest book 12 May 2011

I enjoyed the easy read of the book. It was simple and straight forward and that is what matters. The information is just what we need to keep new ideas flowing in the classroom. It's not always easy to find good textbooks geared toward that birth to five stage. Thanks
