This is a beautifully illustrated pack of activities that can be played with babies from birth to 18 months old. The activities are very interacting and show how everyday tasks can be turned into a learning experience. The aim is to support and develop the baby's communication skills. It was developed by practitioners and speech and language therapists. Each activity has an idea for babies from birth to 6 months, 6 - 12 months and 12 - 18 months. The activities focus on the 5 important elements of communication development: playing and interacting, learning to listen, learning and understanding new words, expressing myself and exploring and developing.

Each card has fun illustrations and focus on early communication, and shows the importance of skills such as looking, listening, playing to develop language skills. Things that certainly are not taught in anti- natal classes but all parents should know. It gives parents exciting ideas to interact with their child, and what ages you are expecting your child to communicate in different ways.
For practioners a wonderful resource for group and individual work. It also has a 6 week plan of activities ready to use.
Communication is so important from birth, and all new babies enjoy interacting.
A great resource.
The activities are set out clearly on individual cards, with ways in which they can be used to suit the age and developmental stage of the baby. The focus is on using day to day experience and interaction between the adult and baby and not on teaching.
They are also an ideal resource for nursery staff to use and a sample plan is provided to get started. A follow on product Toddler Talk provides the next step.Early years practitioners will welcome both of these excellent resources to add to their repetoire.
