Format: Paperback
As a librarian and educator, I read this book and found that it contained essential information for parents and caregivers of young children. At a time of peak brain development, young children are in desperate need of caring adults in their lives who will foster vocabulary and oral language acquisition. Another essential book that can be considered a companion to this one is Betty Bardige's "At a Loss for Words."

Book was ordered for college. Came in good shape and I save a lot of money over buying a new one from the college book store.
