This booklet is filled with activities that you can use to help your young children learn about language. Most of the activities are simple to do with materials found in your home or at the library. The activities are presented for 4 age groups: young babies (birth to 8 mo.); crawlers & walkers (8 to 18 mo.); toddlers (18 to 36 mo.); & preschoolers (3-5 yrs.). The ideas for one age group may also work for a younger or older child. You can read the section for one age group now & save the others for later. Includes an early childhood growth chart with information about what children do in language in the 4 age groups, & a 1998-1999 early childhood activity calendar.
