Overview

Routines are extremely important for small children, and with these easy-to-make signs, babies and toddlers can gain a better understanding of everyday, familiar events. The signs will take kids right from breakfast in the morning (“hungry!”) to bath and bedtime, with its “blanket” and “teddy bear.” Along the way, children will learn American Sign Language for “play,” “toys,” “share,” “park,” “bath,” and more. And that skill helps stimulate language development and good communication. For every word, a big, friendly photograph shows a young child clearly signing, and Lora Heller offers smart tips on how to encourage your toddler to join in.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The current trend seems to be encouraging the use of sign language to increase communication between babies and adults. The inside cover provides suggestions for teaching your child basic sign language. The signs range from a simple expression of wanting to eat, drink and say thank you to more complex ideas of sharing and indicating that you are tired and want to go to sleep. The young toddlers of varying ethnicities are pictured making the signs, and the single word that each sign represents is printed in bold type at the top of the page. Below the picture in a colored border are detailed instructions for making each of the signs. Definitely something worth trying with your little one. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
