You Make the Difference:
In Helping Your Child Learn.
Ayala Manolson with Barb Ward, and Nancy Doddington. Illustrated by Robin
Baird Lewis. Cartoons by Lee Rapp.
You know your child best and care about him the most. You want to help him grow up to be the best he can be. It's important to remember that
HOW you connect with your young child affects:
-- how he feels about himself
-- his chances to learn
You Make the Difference evolved from the Hanen Centre's three-year project to help language-delayed children in economically disadvantaged areas. The ideas are a simplified version of those presented earlier in It Takes Two to Talk. This book is directed towards parents with low literacy skills, or those for whom English is a second language. So the presentation relies on a minimum of words and the lavish use of simple coloured illustrations, highlighted captions, cartoons, and catchphrases.
