Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Marg Gibbs, author of Jasper’s Jumbled Up Words as part of a Books on Tour promotion.

Jasper’s Jumbled up Words is a story of a young child’s journey into communication through speech and shows how the encouragement of a loving family fosters the progress. The excitement that is felt when a child utters their first words will be familiar to most families.

The back-cover blurb

Jasper’s Jumbled up Words is a gentle story about a young boy who wants to be understood.

‘In Jasper’s head, strange sounds bubble, but in his mouth the words get caught and only babble comes out.’

Jasper soon finds himself confused and upset. Then one day, he surprises everyone.

Jasper’s Jumbled up Words sensitively deals with the difficulties surrounding language development and offers children, parents and care givers hope.

    Thank you for featuring M.J. Gibbs and her book, Norah. I liked the title and the cover of the book. I also liked the concept of the book. What a great book for kids to read. I’m so blessed with watching my granddaughter developing her communication skills. She would say long sentences with jumbled up words, thinking she was saying something. Her dad was great guessing what she said and responding to her, saying, “You like blueberries pancakes with whip cream?” She would say ‘yes’ or repeated what she wanted to say.

    When she started taking vitamin and on the day I watched her, gave her lunch. She said viteman to me and I tried so hard to understand. We don’t say vi-ta-min, we say, vite’min, so she didn’t hear the ‘ta.’ It make us think of how to help the kids learn to say words.

      The acquisition of language, both oral and written, has always intrigued me. It is a fascinating phenomenon. Your SIL is encouraging your granddaughter in the best way, by answering her in complete sentences and modelling what she wants to say. I just love this process. Watching children learn and develop is high on my list of favourite things.

    Love the whole premise of Marg’s books. What a lovely and colourful and fun post. (Norah, sorry I’m unable to ‘like’ posts on old clunker. My laptop died. Waiting for my new one. Hugs x
