Description: The first smile, the first laugh, the first word.... These are the eagerly anticipated and treasured moments in a child's early life. From the moment they're born, children are ready to experiment and learn about communicating -- whether with the cries of a hungry infant, the chuckles of a baby playing peek-a-boo, or the emphatic "No!" of an independent toddler.

As parents and caregivers, our love for the young children in our lives points the way for us in responding to their needs and wants. But there are many ways that we can turn those responses into opportunities to nurture our children's developing understanding of language, and to start them on the path of becoming successful and lifelong learners.

In Born to Learn: Developing a Child’s Reading and Writing, Carole Rhodes and Lenore Ringler share decades of experience as teachers, researchers, and mothers in describing how to turn everyday activities into learning opportunities for babies and young children. From suggestions about language games, to ideas about turning household chores into times for conversation, to advice about books to share, Born to Learn is full of practical, hands-on, and fun ways to encourage speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Each chapter focuses on a particular stage in children's development -- from infancy through the preschool years -- and highlights ways you can help your child learn and grow, and be ready to meet the challenges and adventure of entering school.
