    Awesome!

    I'd heard of the benefits of signing for babies from another book by the same authors, Baby Minds. They cited research showing so many benefits to signing, I had to try it. There are plenty of places on-line to learn signs, and you can really just make it up as you go along, but I found that the book was helpful in getting me really started. It's also great for tips on how to use communication with your baby to your advantage, like (and it should've been obvious to me) potty-training earlier. I only wish I'd read this book sooner, but after only about a month, my now ten-month old is telling me when he's hungry for food, when he wants to nurse, and when not to take him off of the potty because he's not quite done. Maybe that doesn't sound like much, but I have a feeling it's only the beginning, and this little bit is already extremely helpful... as well as super-cute to see.

    Great tool in understanding your child

    I took a child psychology class by the author and after seeing her research, I knew I wanted to do baby signs with my child. It has made communicating with my little one so much easier and more fulfilling. With baby signs, I am able to understand my son before he can talk.

    Must have for parents!

    If you are interested in being able to communicate with your child sooner, rather than later, this is a must have! This book helped me through the tantrum and screaming stages of my toddler, who was also speech delayed. I don't know what I would have done without it! I HIGHLY recommend this book to any parent who would like to be able to understand their child before they can tell you what is wrong. It even helps to better understand the body language of all children.

    Very useful.

    I bought this for my daughter to use with my granddaughter. We have both ended up reading it and my granddaughter, who is now 17 mo. old, knows over 10 signs and can really communicate with the family. Her 7 hr. old big sister and 2 young cousins (8 and 9) have both picked up the signs also and really enjoy using them to "talk" to her.
