Meet the Author

Monta Briant, a native of San Francisco, and her husband, Paul, of Cape Town, South Africa, began signing with their daughter, Sirena, when she was six months old. The family eventually learned hundreds of signs together. Monta was so moved by the ability to communicate effectively with her then preverbal daughter that she found herself telling anyone pushing a stroller about baby sign language. In 2001, Monta, a former professional yacht captain, decided to make a permanent career change that would enable her to stay home with her daughter, so she founded Baby Sign Language Workshops. An enthusiastic speaker and self-proclaimed “baby sign language evangelist,” Monta teaches baby sign language workshops and parent-tot signing classes throughout San Diego County. Baby Sign Language Workshops classes have been the subject of feature stories in the San Diego Union-Tribune and on Fox 6 News. This is her first book.

    Great quick-reference book.

    I teach early childhood special education and we use a lot of basic sign language to enhance communication. I found this at the bookstore and I think it will be useful when I need to look up a sign quickly. The second half of the book has a variety of signs (each on its own page) listed alphabetically. I like the extensive vocabulary that's included in this book... frequently used nouns, verbs, etc. It seems to have more than other Baby Signs programs I've come across. It even taught my husband a few signs!

    We Love this Book

    I Have Only Had This Book For 2 Weeks & My Daughter Who Is 13 Months Already Knows About 10 Signs! I Have No Experience With Signing & This Is The Perfect Book For Novice Signers. I Love How The Author Shows The Signs Instead Of It Being A Drawn Picture As Well. I Cant Wait To Get Some More Of Her Books & DVDs! I Was Very Skeptical That Signing With My Baby Would Help Her Or If She Would Even Understand It! But As I Saw Her Understanding It I Knew It Would Change Our Lives Forever! I Have Noticed That She Is Throwing Fit Less & Less Everyday Also She Is Talking Alot More (Still Baby Talk ) But I'm Able To Make Out More Words As The Days Go On
