Overview

The ultimate guide to baby sign language, with color photos and 200 signs!

You can hear—your baby can hear—so what's the deal? Every parent knows how frustrated—how enraged—babies become when they can't make themselves clear to their families. But now, before they can talk, they can tell you what they mean—with signs!

Signing has taken the parenting world by storm. Why? Every parent is eager to give their baby the best possible upbringing, the least frustration, and the best head start for achieving in today's driven, competitive society. Research (funded by the National Institutes of Health) has found that signing babies: talk sooner and have larger vocabularies; have stronger parent/child bonds; have less frustration, crying and tantrums; show more interest in books; engage in more sophisticated play; and have higher IQ scores. Now, what parent doesn't want that?

Baby signing has been featured on Dateline and Oprah. Teach Your Baby to Sign features photographs of babies signing, plus line illustrations of each sign. And it provides 200 useful signs—more than any other book—so parents can have a wide selection to choose from, along with stage-by-stage guidance so they'll know which signs to teach first and which to add as they and their baby become progressively more skilled and comfortable with signing.

I started using these signs when my baby girl was 10 months old. By her first birthday, she was easily and appropriately communicating "hungry" "book" "bedtime" and by 14 months she had a signing vocabulary of about 20 words. It's great for me and my husband to have a consistent source of signs and ideas on how best to teach/use them. I highly recommend this if you're desperate to communicate with your baby.

This book cannot be read on the Nook app for iPads, which is unfortunate since it came recommended by a friend.
