In this blog, we'll try to share what we know about words and language and reading.   We'll give you updates about the project, point you to new and exciting research, and give practical tips for helping to build language and reading skills in your children.

We'd love to hear from you: if you're part of our Growing Words project, and there's something you are curious about, let us know!  If you're a colleague, send us your thoughts (particularly if you disagree).  Please be in touch!
