Follows the language development of three typical kids. She presents them as real kids, but I believe they are probably composites of real kids,due to the fact that she contradicts herself twice. (The first time she says that Alex is vacationing with his parents and a physician is not present, despite the fact that Alex's father is a physician. The second time she says the as a toddler Alex watched the Star Wars movie on TV, later she says that he only watched educational kids' TV.)
