How Babies Talk:  The Magic and Mystery of Language in the First Three Years of Life

Title: How Babies Talk: The Magic and Mystery of Language in the First Three Years of Life
By: Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D.

I found the book fascinating! The authors discuss language development in children beginning before birth. Each chapter of the book is dedicated to a particular age range and within each chapter various language studies are discussed. They talk about how the studies were conducted, what was learned, and they also include many real-life examples such as conversations between parents and their children. There is a lot of information packed in this book but the author has written it in such a way that it's easy to follow. I now feel I have a much better understanding of how my baby's language skills are developing and what to expect as she gets older. I highly recommend checking this one out!
