Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
At one time, teaching toddlers American Sign Language seemed a novel parental self-indulgence; now it seems like a simple and natural path to early communication. Baby signing is fun and encourages young children to develop their motor skills.
Children's Literature
Several books have been published encouraging parents and young children to try using sign language to communicate. In this board book all can learn some basic signs for the following concepts—eat, more, sorry, good, and other practical words and emotions that would be of interest and use to a toddler. On each page the kids illustrate the signs and where appropriate the correct Standard American Sign Language hand signs and expressions are used. The kids are attractive and look a bit like those that Shirley Hughes may have drawn. It is a book that can be enjoyed by hearing and non-hearing toddlers and parents and even those not interested in learning sign language. However, if teaching sign language is a goal, there are helpful suggestions at the bottom of the pages. 2004, Child's Play, Ages 1 to 3.

    Great Book for Baby, Toddler & Older

    This was my three year old daughter's first signing book. She wore the book out due to how often we looked through it and practiced our signs. Thanks to sign language she was communicating with us long before she started speaking. She still uses her signs in combination with her verbal language. We also love being able to communicate with her across the room in extended family situations without raising our voices. She knows the signs and immediately responds to them. I'm buying another copy of this book since there is another baby on the way.

    Great Starter Book for Signing

    Originally, this book was a gift for my husband and I at a baby shower. We enjoyed reading it and practicing a few of the signs. When the baby was six months of age, I picked it up again and began giving myself a refresher course and practicing with the baby. The book is very simple and clear. The pictures are big and there are arrows to show the direction of the sign. The signs the author picked make sense and are very useful in everyday life with a child. Our child has mastered most of these signs and now points to the signs and tells us what they are. Sometimes she does so with the sign and sometimes with the spoken word. I would recommend this book to first time parents who are considering incorporating at least some basic signs into baby's life.
