we provide instant communication information.

Crunch Time Language is a series of guides designed to make communicating in another language incredibly easy... and extremely fun!
Currently our two books, The New Crunch-Time Guide to Parenting Language for Chinese Adoption and The New Crunch-Time Guide to Parenting Language for Haitian Adoption, (The Haiti edition launches in March) are designed to help parents be able to communicate effectively from day one. It’s also great if you’re already home, and need to communicate with your child quickly. The books' sections are divided into simple categories, each color-coded so you can quickly dive into the section needed at any given moment. Find just what you need, exactly when you need it! The series will continue with additional books scheduled to be available in 2017. If you have a language you'd like to see translated for your upcoming adoption, contact us.
