I always knew that you were supposed to talk with children to support language growth, but it felt awkard at times. Authors Teresa and Laura Laikko have given me ideas in using conversations that directly correlate to the child and your interactions together. I like their ideas of using "Parallel talk," which consists of talking aloud to describe what your child is doing. I've started to use this frequently as my God-daughter is not very verbal yet.
What I like most about this book is that many concepts that can be used continously as a child grows, even if the child isn't very verbal like reading engaging books together (flaps, flips, and textures), using bath paints and "painting" with water on the sidewalk. As the child gets older, concepts like "Calendar Time (Learning days of the week)," "Mystery Bag (Describing the shape and feel of objects)" and helping them make their own books are great learning tools that are not only fun, but engaging.
