This book talks about different ways parents and carers can interact with their babies (6 weeks to 4 months old) to support early communication development. Suggestions include yarning and playing, yarning about feelings and sharing books.
Community health nurses and Aboriginal Health Workers in Western Australia are encouraged to offer and discuss the Yarning together book with parents and carers of newborn babies and infants.
