Babies Start Here!

(2002)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Educational psychologist Bill Gillham has created a fun and innovative early-language book using words that children actually choose to use when they start to speak. Each of the four main illustrations is taken from a main list of words, and on the opposite page, an illustrated scene shows varied examples of each object, such as different sized dolls or real bricks and a picture of bricks painted on a toy box. Children are asked to identify each object and are then encouraged to search the picture for more examples of it. Hence they learn to conceptualize each word and to use them in different situations. Based on research in both the UK and US, this unique, interactive book enables parents to actively help young children develop early-language skills.
