I teach early childhood special education and we use a lot of basic sign language to enhance communication. I found this at the bookstore and I think it will be useful when I need to look up a sign quickly. The second half of the book has a variety of signs (each on its own page) listed alphabetically. I like the extensive vocabulary that's included in this book... frequently used nouns, verbs, etc. It seems to have more than other Baby Signs programs I've come across. It even taught my husband a few signs!

I Have Only Had This Book For 2 Weeks & My Daughter Who Is 13 Months Already Knows About 10 Signs! I Have No Experience With Signing & This Is The Perfect Book For Novice Signers. I Love How The Author Shows The Signs Instead Of It Being A Drawn Picture As Well. I Cant Wait To Get Some More Of Her Books & DVDs! I Was Very Skeptical That Signing With My Baby Would Help Her Or If She Would Even Understand It! But As I Saw Her Understanding It I Knew It Would Change Our Lives Forever! I Have Noticed That She Is Throwing Fit Less & Less Everyday Also She Is Talking Alot More (Still Baby Talk ) But I'm Able To Make Out More Words As The Days Go On

When my oldest was a baby, I was in FULL DENIAL that he was deaf. I was tapping him to get his attention and believed he was a "selective listener," even when he wasn't saying "Momma" or "Dadda" like his same-age peers. I had multiple friends tell me that baby sign language was amazing...that it helped ALL babies stimulate brain development, build confidence, reduce frustration, and acquire communication skills to help them talk sooner. I didn't want to believe it at the time, but I finally gave into my friend's suggestion to try out a baby sign language class in the North Park area. The teacher of the class was also an author named Monta Zelinsky Briant. I wrote about her in my book, but I must reiterate that she changed my life. She offered support and guidance during a time I felt scared, alone, and lost. She quickly helped our family with copies of her book, "Baby Sign Language Basics," and we started attending her upbeat, hands-on classes on a weekly basis. As a result, my child, Ryland, acquired 200+ ASL signs and finally had a "voice" without any access to sound. It was a miracle and something I will never be able to explain without emotion. Without a doubt, I recommend her book & classes to ALL families. She is an incredible person with a definite gift of helping others.
