Overview

That first wave “goodbye” is a developmental milestone for baby—and a big thrill for parents. So imagine the joy moms and dads will feel when they discover that babies and toddlers can interact with them using actual language…even before the children can speak! That’s the magic of introducing sign language early on: it allows even the very young child to communicate complex words and concepts. Baby Fingers: Hello, Goodbye presents the basic vocabulary children need to begin conversations. The simple phrases include “good morning,” “how are you?” “hug me,” “let’s go,” and one that will mean the world to every parent: “I love you.”

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. It starts simply with "Hello" and moves on to "Good Morning" and then proceeds to much more complex ideas such as "How are you?" and "I'll miss you." Many of the children making the signs look like they are old enough to be talking, but perhaps they cannot yet do so in complete sentences. The variety of children presented should encourage kids to pick up this book. Children are pictured making the signs and the concept that it 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. The signs in this board book are more complex than any I have seen to date. Definitely something worth trying with your little one. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
