Love without words / Picture books for baby growth

Any parent can become their baby's best teacher by using wordless picture books. Our 'book-sharing' courses for families have been proven through scientific trials in South Africa to improve babies' language, cognitive, and emotional development. This is true even in illiterate families.
The Mikhulu Trust supports community-based facilitators to run book-sharing courses for young families. The courses use special picture books developed by psychologists and local artists, which invite families to talk about what different characters are thinking, feeling, and doing. Mikhulu is active in South Africa, Namibia, Brazil, and Europe.
