Discussing topics like how babies acquire language, how humans create and change languages and how slang impacts language, "Chitchat" provides a charming exploration of the spoken word for a young reader. With only 48 pages, the book merely skims the surface of language issues but its friendly tone, illustrations and register will appeal to 8-12 year olds.

Jude Isabella presents informational text packed with quirky facts and trivia, a fascinating overview that lends humour to the topic of how language functions in the world.
