"Before children learn to talk they have to understand the words and sounds that are being used around them. Always bear in mind that a language rich environment supports the development of sounds and letters. Using collections of familiar objects is an appropriate way to support talk and social interaction. In our nursery we have seen how babies show pleasure and excitement when sharing these baskets with someone they know.
Top tip: practitioners can use these props to recreate and share their own magical, imaginative stories. "
