Created by an early speech expert, this interactive first words book filled with fun-to-read rhymes helps little ones learn to talk!
Each page features:
- Simple, exciting sounds that are easy for little ones to imitate, and can be used to build bigger words
- Rhythm and rhyme to encourage repetition and help keep babies engaged, even before they can understand the text
- Real photographs that model correct mouth positions and support social emotional learning
Written by a speech-language pathologist, My First Learn-to-Talk Book is designed to help babies and toddlers master the skills they need as they learn to talk. Reading the book aloud helps caregivers easily model important aspects of communication for little ones—not only through sounds and words, but also with gestures, facial expressions and more!
