This suggests that visual cues may help babies avoid mixing up different languages. http://www.newscientist.com/ Scottish children 'more advanced' Scottish three-year-olds have a wider vocabulary and better understanding of colours, numbers and shapes than those elsewhere in the UK, a study has shown. Further analysis needs to be done in order to establish why. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/6740159.stm "Going on a Bear Hunt" author new Children's Laureate Michael Rosen has been made the fifth Children's Laureate, and said he will use the role to be an "ambassador for fun". http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/ If you would like to read this news as it happens, without waiting for this newsletter, then grab our newsfeed from http://under-fives.org/newsfeed.html It's free and instantly updates you with the latest news and events via e-mail, your web site or any news feed reader. ___________________________________________________________ Copyright studholme.net, 2007 You are welcome to copy or forward any part of this newsletter, but please include this copyright notice and web address - http://www.under-fives.org/ Previous editions of this newsletter are archived at http://www.under-fives.org/news.html
