Speaking and listening; writing and reading; a baby's cry or a friend's hug. Communication is the way people share what they know and share how they feel.

With more than 60 fiction and nonfiction titles for children to her credit, Aliki has been delighting her many fans since her first book was published in 1960. Born in New Jersey, she now lives in New York City.
Aliki's books for young readers include the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out titles Digging Up Dinosaurs, Fossils Tell of Long Ago, My Feet, and My Hands. Other nonfiction books by Aliki include How a Book Is Made, Mummies Made in Egypt, My Visit to the Aquarium, My Visit to the Dinosaurs, My Visit to the Zoo, Wild and Woolly Mammoths, and William Shakespeare & the Globe.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-- Aliki introduces readers to many forms of communication, the reasons to practice them, and some of the barriers that may be encountered in the process. Unfortunately, despite her spirited, colorful cartoons, the text bogs down as simple explanations are cluttered with not-so-simple exceptions and commendable, but confusing, bibliotherapy. The difficulty of communicating feelings is clearly related to the subject, but its inclusion here clouds the clarity of sender-message-receiver-feedback. Verbal and written communication share space with braille (depicted as visual not tactile so one wonders how a blind person can feel a dark spot on a page) and sign for the deaf. Nonverbal communication is touched upon along with animal communication, pen pals, use of puppets, greeting cards, and miscommunication as in the game of gossip. The vivid illustrations represent a variety of ethnic groups and a wealth of emotional textures. An adequate collection of tidbits with little if any competition at this level, Communication has many possible applications in an educational setting or a parent and child may read it together . Youngsters may enjoy the illustrations and grasp a point or two, but it is unlikely that independent readers will seek it out. --Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
