Editorial Reviews

"In a fun, down-to-earth style, Small Talk gives parents the practical tools to understand their babies and to help them develop speech and language while sharing the excitement of each new word." -Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, Professor of Pediatrics, Emeritus, Harvard Medical School "Small Talk is a must-read for parents keen to help their child express themselves from the get go. I can't recommend it enough." -Gurgle magazine "For many parents, the idea of talking to their newborn seems foreign, and even a waste of time. But Lathey, a children's speech and language therapist, said that mindset couldn't be further from the truth." -New York Daily News
