Holzman, Mathilda (1997) The Language of Children, 2nd edition.

The emphaiss of this book is on explaining psychological variables in
language. The development of human language use is first related to the
development of signaling in other species and to the early interaction
between the infant and his/her caregiver. The author then goes on to
relate the child's language development to broader cognitive development,
and considers the influence of schooling and scoial experience.
