This series of gentle picture books highlights ways to encourage communication as babies learn to talk. Created with Nicola Lathey, a specialist speech and language therapist for very young children and Tracey Blake, an experienced journalist, Campbell's Small Talk series is ideal for parents and children to share.

In Small Talk: Bedtime see how expressions, gestures and repetition of simple first words can help early conversations to blossom, throughout baby's bathtime and nighttime routine. By encouraging babies to join in, you'll soon experience the joy of their very first words and phrases. With lively illustrations by Ailie Busby.
