    I am excited to get this book to get here. I am a grandmother of

    I am excited to get this book to get here. I am a grandmother of 2 & I started using sign language when my 19 year old was 6 months. She went on to graduate 3 years early. My 1st grandchild is almost 7 & we never went through the "terrible 2's".The youngest is 19 months & defiantly has his grandma's Irish temperament! Yet he has been signing since before a year old & dos about 50 signs and his vocal words are way above 100. I have had a stroke and seizures so I don't remember all the signs.I started with the baby signing bible' he has learned all of those so hopefully it will give us new things to learn. I will comment after using it.
