Part of the Amazing Baby series, the book is perfectly-sized for tiny hands and mouths to explore. In her engaging instructions, Katie Mayne teaches parents how to understand their little ones using simple sign language, starting with signs for milk,” food,” drink,” and progressing to instructional signs like look” and beyond. Filled with easy-to-follow steps, oversized black and white photos, and including a tabbed index, this book teaches and captivates parents and their babies.
