Book Review of How to Talk to your Baby
By Dorothy Dougherty
In the November, 2009 issue of Be the Best Nanny Newsletter we discuss How to Talk to your Baby by Dorothy Dougherty.
The book describes how to enhance a baby's language development using a system that incorporates the five proven teaching methods of naming, describing, comparing, explaining, and giving directions.
The book is short and easy to read. Unlike baby sign language and Dunstan Baby Language which take time to learn, How to Talk to your Baby describes techniques you are probably using instinctively with babies already. During your work day, you should be speaking to the infant constantly and the author gives examples on how to do that.
The book will help you turn the supermarket into a super classroom, will make the playground a learning ground -- and will give children a gift that will prove invaluable throughout life.
Stop by again next Saturday for another Weekly Trip to the Library. If you have a book you would like to recommend for nannies and au pairs contact Stephanie@BestNannyNewsletter.com.
