As confirmed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, infant sign language is a boon for enhancing communication between parents and babies, helping to forge an important bond early in a child's life. The Baby Signing Bible provides step-by-step instructions for parents and other caregivers, as well as insight into why baby sign language is useful for children of all ages. Kids with special needs can also benefit greatly from this program. Featuring 400 signs, the book covers essential nouns such as milk, verbs such as eat, and descriptors such as more. In addition, The Baby Signing Bible features real-life stories from parents who have successfully signed with their children, along with fun songs and games that help families learn to "sign and sing." Confidence-building illustrations enhance the basics for mastering vocabulary words.

I think it is awesome but I am rather irritated. I am a teacher at a child care center and I am trying to teach my children sign language. I bought this book so that i could print out the signs and put them on the walls at work. unfortunately buying it with my nook i am unable to view the book on my pc therefore I am going to have to go to the store and actually buy the book again just so i can use it in my classroom. I am very satisfied with the book but extremely disappointed with the Nook itself.
