This illuminating book focuses on one child's emerging ability to use language, and on her capacity for understanding, for imagining, and for making inferences and solving problems. 'Narratives from the Crib' presents a multi-faceted analysis, by scholars of child language and cognitive development, of two-year-old Emily's presleep monologues and conversations with her parents at bedtime, taped over a fifteen-month period.
