The Chatabout Children Book Boutique is the place to find carefully selected books, suitable for;
- Parents/ Carers
- Professionals who work with children
These books have been especially recommended, drawing from Sonia Bestulic’s expertise as a Senior Speech & Language Pathologist; Multi Award nominated Author, Parent/ Professional coach and educator… and a mother of three!
Together with Sonia’s recommendation; the books have been tried and tested by children and adults within the home and/ or educational contexts. Books have also been a success with children and/ or their parents/ carers within Sonia’s speech pathology clinics (in Sydney Australia).
At the bottom of every blog post for a children’s book, please insert:
Book sharing as part of a child’s daily routine, and in an interactive way, has enormous benefits, including;
- Building attention and listening skills
- Strengthening a child’s vocabulary
- Increasing understanding of language
- Creating an opportunity for a child to use language in various ways
- Reinforcing problem solving skills
- Facilitating empathy development
Importantly; interactive book sharing strengthens relationship bonds and allows an opportunity for valuable human connection.
We are advocates for early intervention; and a holistic approach. We recognise the great importance of communication as a life skill; and also respect and work to strengthen the link between spoken language and learning to read, spell and write.
