I would recommend the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. The title pretty much covers everything you need to know. This book teaches parents how to talk with children in a way that the child will understand and be able to fully express what they want to say. Overall – I would recommend this book to anyone that is new to parenting and for those who have been doing it for a while. The book is easy to read, well written and speaks common sense.

Baby Touch and Feel: First Words by DK

This product was recommended by Kassie Hanson from Talk 2 Me Mama

As a pediatric speech-language pathologist, I love so much about this book. For one, I love the real pictures, because research shows that it’s easiest for children to learn from actual photographs rather than drawings. I also appreciate that there is one picture per page, so that your baby can concentrate on a single word rather than many pictures crowded together. The words the author chose are perfect, because they are objects that are pertinent and interesting to many babies and children. Lastly, I like that the book is “touch and feel” because your baby will be more engaged while reading because of the fun textures..

Dr. Seuss’s 100 First Words by Dr. Seuss

I am suggesting this because it has simple words that are not too complicated for babies, and it has colorful illustrations that they’ll definitely appreciate. This book also contains words that are normally used in everyday life, which they’ll be able to recognize easily. Lastly, this book is a board book – you never have to worry about it getting warped or torn as it is very sturdy, it can last for a very long time.

Talking with Your Toddler by Teresa Laikko

This product was recommended by Janice from SkyGenius

This little book covers the development stages of children’s language, and you can help your children to prepare for kindergarten. Although babies cannot speak yet, they can understand much of what is going on around them. They are constantly listening to what we have to say and trying to build their language base.

Whether animals, toys, or food – this beautifully designed picture book accompanies toddlers as they learn new terms from the child’s world of experience.

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

This product was recommended by Janice from SkyGenius

The children’s books by Diogenes impress with their own style and are immediately eye-catching thanks to their extraordinary design. To learn a language you have to interact with it, speak it, listen to it and study it, but reading can make a huge difference. Reading with your children is a special bonding time with them. Through intonation and pictures, they can understand a lot more of the story than you might expect.

Moo, Baa, La La La by Sandra Boynton

This product was recommended by Janice from SkyGenius

A fun way to teach your child the sounds animals make and the ending presents the opportunity to have your child say what is on his/her mind and talk about more animals and their sounds. The cute-but-not-cutesy rhyming can be addictive.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin

This product was recommended by Janice from SkyGenius

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a great book when teaching a child the letters and order of the alphabet. This book has great content for teaching the order of the alphabet and the illustrations go perfectly with the book. Kids can be able to learn the alphabet quickly through the rhythmic and joyful telling of this story! It is a fun, fast, jump roping kind of sing-song story!

Henry Finds His Word by Lindsay Ward

This product was recommended by Stephen Curry from CocoSign

Both the newly become parents and their little kiddo will be mesmerized by Henry’s exploration for his first word. The book showcased that the baby Henry’s parents were eagerly waiting for his first word to come out, conversing with any parent’s sentiment. It genuinely illustrated the ways Henry wanted to communicate until his first word found him. He left no stone unturned for a better start finding a word. Fortunately, one fine day, when he needed it the most, his first word came out of his mouth. The author, Lindsay Ward’s expressive, straightforward, and pastel-colored graphics are more than enough to sustain your baby’s attention.
