 Lots of Language Fun

I absolutely love this book. I'm a professor of linguistics, and love this book for its language play. One of the best things you can do for your kids is give them a love of language. As I tell my students, there is NO part of life that doesn't involve language. The better you master it, the more successful you become. Holly's book highlights this in several ways, but keeps it fun, lighthearted and full of play.
