Book Description

This set, comprised of a guidebook and four colourful picture books, has been designed for parents and practitioners supporting children to understand and use two-word sentences.

Written in a friendly and reassuring tone, the guidebook untangles questions and concerns that many parents and practitioners share around language development, such as whether children are reaching important milestones, whether they benefit from screen-time and dummies, and what to do if there might be a problem.

Bright and colourful illustrations in the storybooks provide rich opportunities for conversation and engagement, using a serve and return structure and based around pivot words. The simple stories and repetition provide an opportunity for the child to hear and experience the sentence structure in new ways.

The set includes:

  • Helping Children Find Their Voices: A guide for parents and practitioners, exploring questions and concerns that many parents and practitioners share around language development, such as whether children are reaching important milestones, whether they benefit from screen-time and dummies, and what to do if there might be a problem.
  • Down the Slide: A colourful picture book using the pivot word ‘down’
  • Hello!: A colourful picture book using the pivot word ‘hello’
  • Gone to the Park: A colourful picture book using the pivot word ‘gone’
  • Sleep Time: A colourful picture book using the pivot word ‘sleeping’

This is an exciting resource for early years practitioners, parents, and those working with children at an early stage of speech and language development.
