I got an ARC of this book via NetGalley.

This was very easy and it was good. Since my kids are having a hard time reading even though they are already 11 and 7 years old. 

The drawings were simple and easy to follow.

Adorable illustrations and fun simple words that captured my baby's attention. She enjoyed helping me "pop" the bubbles and participated in reading the book with me. I love how it is repetitive and short - it's the perfect length to keep my little one's attention. This book is a perfect way to introduce sounds and turn babbles into beginning words. Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC.

Stephanie Ciatti the author of Let's Talk Baby is a speech pathologist.  Personally I think why this book is awesome! The beginning of the book has tips for parents and caregivers.  The watercolor style illustrations are not visually over stimulating which is perfect before nap and bedtime.  This would make an excellent baby shower gift.

I loved how the simple (but cute!) graphics weren't overwhelming in their design, but they still had plenty of aspects to notice and point out to small children. I loved that the words were sounds that could be easily produced by an infant and were repeated and displayed in large print. 

However, with these types of books that are meant to achieve a specific developmental objective in infants, I always wish there were instructions or suggestions to readers, who are not trained in speech pathology, that would allow for a more productive reading of the text. The book can be enjoyed without this type of reading, but I wonder what we could do to encourage those readers who would love to deliver this type of instruction while reading.

This was a very sweet book I was checking out for my friend who just had a new baby. It is a very cute book to help with evelopmental skills

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a book for the very youngest of readers. I love the simplicity of both the illustrations and the language. And the fact that the baby whale snacks on gold fish. I feel like this is something that little ones will relate to.

This book offers adults the chance to encourage their baby’s verbal development by introducing simple sounds. This title begins with some advice for adults about how to help a child’s vocal development. These seem quite sensible and intuitive.

I am not a speech pathologist so cannot vouch for how well this book will do its job. I can say that it has adorable illustrations, repetition and simple sounds.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Let's Talk, Baby is such an adorable book! The illustrations are lovely, but the best part is the repetition and "baby babble" which is just what is needed to keep your baby (or grandbaby in my case) engaged and help develop their speech. I would buy the whole series!💕

This was so smart. It's such a great learning tool for the adults and the babies. Will definitely be getting a copy to work on with my nieces and nephews.

This inspiring book will help you turn your baby's babble into actual words! It is the first book in a developmental appropriate series of language development books for infants and babies. This board book will help parents and caregivers support a baby's language development. Luckily the book offers tips from a professional speech language pathologist to help the process along.  

The watercolour illustrations are soft and adorable.  Babies will love the attention and interaction which will garner their success in word formations.  I recommend this book.

This is a wonderful book. I’ve been reading it to the baby and he smiles every time! What a great way to introduce language to little ones. My toddler loves the pictures and repeats the text too.

I loved the colours in this baby board book and the illustrations are cute. A simple book to read with babies to help develop their early language. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Let's talk baby' is a non-fiction book for guardians of toddlers who are still in the early stages of speaking. Early speech sounds , not so complex for babies to successfully produce words and first conversation for the baby to enable talk and language development are represented in picture form where the parents are instructed to build side stories to make the lesson easy peasy for the baby. Babble book aids parents to communicate with their baby lovingly, caringly and supportively resulting in close bonding and trust.

Author Stephanie Ciatti is a speech pathologist and a mom with a good motive where her work is laudable enough for creating especially this babble book keeping in mind , educating unaware or unenlightened parents to help their babies by putting their best foot forward to a greater extent , most of all to be distinctive. She gives tips to parents in order to make their babies confident and enthusiastic about literary skills. Nice initiative taken by the author but not good enough. I recommend the book for parents or caretakers of infants.

This book provides information in a cute, accessible way, perfect for younger children to follow along to and enjoy. There are fun pictures which would be a great addition to the library of early years!!

Super cute, super short, super on point book about beginning noise sounds and how to help babies stretch babbles into full on words.  Repetitive and balanced, in a good way, Let's Talk, Baby is written by a mom & speech pathologist.  Love the illustrations, full of an adorable whale family.  

Only negative in my early literacy teacher's mind was the font: I get aesthetics & that parents get bored of looking at the same old, boring serif fonts over and over again, but if books are going to grow with their kids, and help them build literacy skills later, then using a cursive font (or as close to a cursive font as I've ever seen in a book for babies) is not the best choice.  Again: nothing against the content, just a note about why it doesn't get five stars from me.   

Also: I got my copy free for honest review, through NetGalley, and it should be available for everybody else come October 14. 2021.

First of all, the illustrations in this book are absolutely gorgeous. The book itself is great for helping your baby learn how to talk and in that case, I highly recommend it.
