With our daughter majoring in Speech Communication Disorders this book seems like a great tool to use and help others learn a little about stuttering. This is one in a collection of books from “The Something to Say Collection”. This book helps understand speech and language differences.
I found this book, and, although I have not read it yet, I want to. It is something that I say to so many of our friends and family as well as people we come into contact with. “He may not look at you when he talks or you talk, but he hears you”. I am so curious how this book handles this, and, it is geared for kids! Click the link to learn more.
