Build Your Child's Word Bank

Posted by Nadine Johnson on

Babies are so cute and cuddly, you just want to kiss them up all day. But remember, every second of everyday, you are building their vocabulary and their word-bank.

A child's success in school can be determine by the amount of words she hears by the age of four. Therefore, it is important to continually talk to your baby - at bathtime or bedtime or while you are cooking dinner. Talk to your baby as if she understands what you are saying.

Invest in your child and build her word-bank by continually feeding her words and information about her surroundings.

The Last Night I Dreamt Children's Book Series is a perfect way to start.

  • Dear Ms. Johnson,
    As a children’s book writer, to be published, I did a recent search of other South Carolina (children’s book) writers through the Richland County Library. I will tell you that I was pleased to find your book, “I Am.” As a retired Clinical Social Worker, I have been compelled to write a book to encourage both parents / surrogates and their children. You have accomplished that!

    As a new writer, with all the mentors speaking to the power of expanding your cohort, I would appreciate an opportunity to develop a dialog with you. If you are so inclined, please feel free to contact me at my email address. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss all aspects of publishing a children’s book.

    Thanking you in advance,
