About the Author
Monta Briant first discovered baby sign language when she was expecting her first child. She began signing with her daughter, Sirena, when she was 6 months old, and was so impressed with the results that she felt compelled to share what her family had learned with other parents and caregivers of young children.
Monta offers classes, workshops, and storytimes throughout San Diego County. Her Baby Sign Language Basics series of products includes everything parents need for signing success, including several books, an instructional DVD, flash cards, and the Songs for Little Hands Music CD and Activity Guide.
