Baby Signs for Bedtime (Baby Signs) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's as easy as waving bye-bye!

Babies have a lot to say, even before they can actually speak familiar bedtime words like "sleepy" and "quiet." Baby Signs are simple gestures that allow babies and toddlers to communicate what they see, what they need, and even how they feel. Research has shown that Baby Signs decrease frustration and tantrums and help your baby talk sooner.

When to begin: When your child starts to wave bye-bye.

How to do it: Show your baby the sign and point to the picture. Always say the word as you make the sign.

Improvise: Make up your own signs — your baby probably will too!

Synopsis:

Bedtime for infants and toddlers is made easier with this board book featuring the most popular signs used for parent-child communication prior to young children being able to form words. Full-color photos.

Synopsis:

Baby signing is easy and natural. Infants and toddlers can learn how to say what they need, what they see, and even what they feel long before their vocal chords are developed enough to let them use actual words. In this revolutionary breakthrough in parent-child communication, parents have a priceless window into their young child's mind and heart. The two newest baby signs board books include the most popular signs for animals and bedtime and provide parents a place to begin "talking" with their little ones from the start.
