I bought this without much expectation that it would be interesting enough for my inquisitive 5 year old. But actually he found it relevant. Younger kids at his school don't speak clearly yet and he was able to relate that to this book. It starts with baby sister who can't talk but that doesn't stop her from chattering all the time. Dad says it's ok, she is working hard to learn. We learned about our breath. There are experiments for you to make AAAAAA until you are out of breath and notice that you can't make the noise when you run out of air. Feel the throat vibrate as you make the noise. Next learn about the larynx and how it works. Another good experiment with a balloon to explain how the larynx works. These "little" exercises were great ways to help understand what is going on when we talk. Next hold up a mirror to look at teeth and tongue while you shape your mouth or try to make sounds without moving specified parts. it really did show us that we use a lot of parts to make the wide variety of sounds we need to talk and sing. It ends on a note of compassion to be patient as we watch children learning to talk because it is hard work. Love it.
