The Secret Language of Your Child by Dr David Lewis Giveaway!


The Blurb

What is a toddler trying to say by touching their ears or tilting their head? Dr David Lewis pioneered the study of how young children communicate with each other using gestures and facial expressions and his detailed research explains how toddlers can already communicate before they learn to speak. The Secret Language of Your Child explains the facial and body expressions of the under-fives, helping parents to understand what their child is trying to communicate and to recognise when a child is feeling anxious, aggressive or distressed. Using a wealth of illustrations that interpret the secret language of your child, David Lewis reveals how to communicate with a child during its formative years. Learn how to understand your child and how to reply in the same language. The Secret Language of Your Child is a handbook for all new parents, carers and nursery staff in its revelations of the body language and the behaviour of the under-fives. It will make every reader look at under fives in an entirely different way.

My Thoughts

This book is so fascinating. It’s an easy read and definitely will make you look at your toddler in a different way. I will be honest and thought ‘not another one that tells you a load of rubbish’ but it has surprised me and I really did enjoy reading it.

It makes you say ‘oh right, that does make sense now’ It really is very fascinating and when you read the book, it does all make sense, it doesn’t make you think ‘oh what a load of rubbish’ which in all honesty was what I was expecting to find. I would definitely recommend it.
