The book puts forward a method for stimulating linguistic abilities and competences through creative fun exercises suited to different ages and needs. The activities described are based on the use of the numerous accompanying pictures and cartoons; this enables children to work in a «tangible» way with words, directly tracing meaning, and enables teachers and speech therapists to create personalised programmes for lexical enrichment and for the correct structuring of sentences and their connection in the period. The book is useful both in the event of language difficulties and for starting to learn how to read and write. It can also be used successfully for teaching foreign languages in primary school or for teaching Italian to foreign children.
