Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Some studies have shown that babies and toddlers who learn to sign even before they can say the equivalent words are less frustrated and develop good communication skills. This award-winning book in the "Signing Smart" series teaches some basic ASL-certified sign language. Babies will learn to recognize dad and even indicate talking on the phone. Maybe they also identify their moms and ask for more milk. Other simple signs shown here address eating, finishing a bottle, indicating bed time, and more. There is a lot happening on each page. Words or concepts are presented with photographs of real babies/toddlers and adults. However, the main illustrations are more whimsical. Each one includes a tactile component such as a cracker surface or a textured ball. The closing spread offers strategies for using the book, and the back cover provides even more information about this series, including a website address. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
