Praise For This Book
Praise for Every Word Counts

"If I were in charge of American parents, my first law would be that all new parents had to read (or listen to) this book. It's not only soundly researched, but also filled with practical strategies that any parent can use."
Jim Trelease, Author of the million-copy bestseller The Read-Aloud Handbook

"I am now going to fawn over a book. Forgive me if it's messy; fawning doesn't come naturally to a guy. Every parent wants a smart baby, but few parents know how to help their baby's development (my basis for that claim is the surging popularity of unsubstantiated "educational" baby videos). Every Word Counts lays a road map for nurturing language development — from birth — with books. And by extension, attention span and memory also benefit."

"Caroline Blakemore and Barbara Weston Ramirez, both certified Reading Recovery teachers, have a combined 50 years of experience helping children with reading difficulties. In their book and on their Web site (readtoyourbaby.com), they demonstrate the benefits of reading to your child and provide strategies for making storytime fun, as well as educational."
S. Danyelle Knight, Orange County Magazine

"This is a groundbreaking book by Blakemore and Ramirez. If any book were to have all the answers for discovering language with your little one, this would be it."
Library Journal, Starred Review
