A new way to talk to baby!
Baby sign language is a way for parents to communicate with their babies before they can speak by teaching them a few basic gestures or signs. It’s a way to bridge the gap between the gurgling stage and the time when babies are actually able to talk. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Baby Signs introduces parents to the 60 to 80 most common signs nonverbal babies are able to understand and can use to communicate with adults, as well as demonstrations and techniques for teaching the signs.
Customer Review: If you want a smart, happy, non frustrated baby….teach your baby sign lanugage!!
I cannot stress enough how important it is to learn sign language with your child. I have been teaching sign language to my son since he was 10 months. I recieved this book as a gift and it has helped take our sign language even further. My son is a happy little boy, who is not frustrated, and is really smart. I have sign language to help with that!! Don’t be worried that if you teach your child sign language that they will never talk. My son is 16 months, he can sign and say partial words to at least 10 different things, not to mention he is starting to combine words. At 15 months he was able to tell me that he needed to go potty, so potty training has begun. I find it all so amazing, and all I can rave about is how sign language has made it all possible!!
Customer Review: Simple and Convincing
I love this book because it makes baby sign language SO simple. She clearly explains the reasons to do it and de-bunks myths as well. Some of the other books are overwhelming…this one breaks it down to the key signs and the best order for introducing signs. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to sign with their baby! Buy At Amazon!!
