Language for Infants and Toddlers

Children are always absorbing the language around us whether we know it or not. Thats why it is so important to always read to children and have realistic books and pictures all around. Please please please don't baby talk to young children, it truly undermines their intelligence! Below are some examples of books to have around for infants and toddlers. Remember, the more realistic the pictures are, the better! Also you can purchase or print out language card pictures and hang them around your house to spark conversation with your little ones. Even if they can't talk yet, they love to hear you! So explain what's happening in the picture. Don't forget to laminate them because they might end up as baby food :)
