“Patricia Kuhl shares astonishing findings about how babies learn one language over another — by listening to the humans around them and “taking statistics” on the sounds they need to know.

So, if you have ever doubted the advice about reading to your children in order to help them improve their language ability (abilities), doubt no more!
