From Library Journal:

These commonsense titles address infant crying and language development, topics of high interest to new parents. Teacher and writer Hill views crying as a symptom, so discerning the cause will help parents effectively soothe their baby. Each of nine chapters covers a source of infant in distress and gives tips for easing the problem. Hill encourages parents to tune into their baby's sensitivities, drawing upon their own knowledge as well as her ideas. Dougherty, a speech and language pathologist, believes language development arises from daily discourse and events that affect our lives--even things as mundane as household chores. No expensive, overhyped toys or tools are needed. Rather, she suggests games that build a language-rich environment for toddlers--for example, naming items in the supermarket, playground, car, and home. An age-appropriate checklist is provided to allow parents to assess children's language skills. Dougherty also includes a list of "red flags" that suggest delayed development, along with methods to further stimulate a child's speaking. Refreshingly clear and concise, both books are recommended for all public libraries.
