Why Babble Books?
No outfit or nursery decor is cuter than hearing a sweet,
tiny voice saying
Developed by a Speech Language Pathologist and mom, Babble Books are developmentally appropriate picture books that support your baby's speech development from day one.
Babbling is equivalent to crawling, words to walking, and sentences to running. We support our baby's physical development (the beloved "tummy time"), but pay little attention to their speech development.
Did you know there are stages of babbling and sounds that are easier for babies to produce? Babble Books use a developmentally appropriate approach that meets your baby every step of the way and leads to increased success, confidence, and an eagerness to continue talking.
With the increased use of screen time and a correlation between technology and delayed speech development, there is no better time to start supporting your baby's speech with Babble Books. You will spend a lot of money on the right stroller, the cute leather moccasins, the chic diaper bag... but baby books are old classics from when you were a child or written by a celebrity (no hate, Jimmy Fallon). It comes down to this:
Each book contains a page of Parent Tips to further maximize effectiveness of the material while promoting carryover into daily life.
Through the use of Babble Books, a solid foundation for effective communication, socialization, and future academic success will be established.
"As a Pediatrician, I tell parents daily that reading to their child is one of the best ways to foster their language development. What is special about this series of books is that they start specifically with the very youngest child, focusing on early sounds and speech patterns. By reading Babble Books at the beginning of your child's life, you can help stimulate language development while establishing the delightful routine of daily reading."
