What’s even more fun than signing with your baby? Singing and signing!
Today, more than ever, parents love teaching sign language to their little ones—and with good reason! Baby sign language not only gives children a developmental head start by boosting their vocabulary and cognitive skills; it also allows parents to communicate with their pre-verbal babies. But unlike all the other signing books for children out there, this one teaches parents and babies to sign familiar, beloved songs and nursery rhymes—creating an even more enjoyable bonding experience.
While Baby’s Favorite Rhymes to Sign uses the standard American Sign Language (ASL) system, you need not have any previous signing experience. Expert sign language teacher Penny Warner provides the basic primer to get you started, including the most common basic signs of ASL (plus more to expand your vocabulary) and helpful hints on how to sign. Then she goes a step further and teaches you how to “sing” in sign, rather than just talk. (Don’t worry; it’s just as easy!) Also included are resources for more sign books, videos, and games!
Get ready to watch your baby burst into smiles and giggles—not to mention yourself—when you start sign singing these adorable, best-loved rhymes, lullabies, and songs.
