Why does GRAVITY fascinate toddlers?

I'm not sure.

But I DO know that you can use gravity to help your toddler talk more using a pretend SLIDE.

In this video, you'll learn how and why to use verbal routines and repetition to help your toddler learn to talk. 

Here is an example of a verbal routine:

1. Up up up up up

2. Ball!

3. Ready...set...go!

4. Boom!

5. I got it!
