Big Breath of a Wish

By (author): Richard Harrison

Richard Harrison’s fourth book, Big Breath of a Wish, delves deeply into the linguistic discoveries children make in their first two years of life. It uniquely opens up these discoveries to readers, who identify both with the child and the parents and, through Harrison’s clear, suggestive language, rediscover themselves.
