As little ones grow their interest in language naturally grows too. The need to communicate naturally drives their interest in language. Beginning at 2 years of age, children are in a sensitive period for language and absorb concepts about letters, sounds and words easily. The old adage that children are likes sponges for language is true. These series of activities are designed to capitalize on this effortless absorption and inspire little ones with early language concepts.
