Baby Signing: How to Talk with Your Baby in American Sign Language Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Babies usually start to talk around the age of two, but they can learn to communicate through sign language as early as six months. Using simple signs, babies can—and love to—tell their parents how they feel and what they need. Rather than guessing what is in the mind of a fussy infant, parents could "talk" with their babies and discover when they are hungry, tired, ready to play, feeling unwell, or ready for a hug. Learning sign language also helps babies acquire the mental building blocks for speaking, and studies prove that babies who learn to sign are better at language than those who don’t.

This new book from sign language teacher Andrea Fixell and musician Ted Stafford uses songs, games, photos, and easy-to-follow instructions to help parents teach basic American Sign Language to babies. The stand-up format makes it easy to learn and practice the simple hand gestures with your baby, helpful tips offer encouragement, and silly songs ensure you both have fun while learning.

Synopsis:

This standup guide makes it easy for parents to teach baby to sign with songsand games. 50 full-color photos.
