The American Academy of Pediatrics now advised doctors to deliver a clear message at the 2 month check-up about the role of talking, reading, and singing with their infants and toddlers. Too Small to Fail is one of several initiatives that passes out books and a clear message in the pediatrician's office. Other programs give out books and messages in the maternity ward!
I could say, "Duh." Those of us working with your children realize that word knowledge makes a difference. Those who sailed across the sea to reach the Land Of Opportunity sang and talked to their kids!
