5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful reading
I found this such an easy read. Really interesting and inspiring. If you're interested in child development from a professional or, like me, as a parent you just can't go wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars American research - not my cup of tea
I bought this to help me understand language delay.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book. Clever, funny, every parents dream., 9 April 1999
By A Customer
I couln't put it down. This is the first book that allowed me to appreciate my child in a new way. In clear direct language, these authors bring the latest research into our living room. Babies are so much smarter than we ever imagined. Dotted with activitiesthat you can do with your child, this book is a must have for every parent and professional who works with children.

An easy to read book filled with the latest research. I was amazed at what the authors can find out about infant language learning. This book should be in every parent's library.

This review is from: How Babies Talk: The Magic and Mystery of Language in the First Three Years of Life (Paperback)
I found this book very informative but it's not the sort of literature I would read long passages out of. It tends to get a bit boring.
