Children often start school in kindergarten at the age of five, although some kids begin schooling as early as three or four years of age. By this time, kids have already acquired basic communication skills. These language skills are typically the result of interactions between the child and their parents, caregivers, educators, and peers. Talk, Play, and Read with Me Mommy by Jo Ann Gramlich is an excellent book that guides parents, caregivers and educators, and their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers through the early stages of language development. In fact, the book is an excellent resource to help children enhance their speech and language skills and get them school ready!!
