Suitable for everyone wanting to know more about baby signing or starting to sign with their little one.
Babies are able to make simple gestures many months before they are able to speak.
By introducing just a few simple signs, a baby can learn how to communicate their needs and wants. Baby signing reduces guesswork for parents and carers. The proven benefits are calmer, more contented and confident children.
There are 38 basic signs in this book and they are the signs that are commonly found to be the most useful by baby signing teachers covering a range of topics. (There are many more signs that you can use!)
With sign graphics from leading Early Years BSL author Cath Smith, you can clearly see how to make the signs whilst your baby is engaged with the gorgeous illustrations that accompany each page. These capture your little one’s attention completely and this book is likely to become one that your baby returns to time and again, well into their pre-school years.
The book has been divided into short topic sections and at the end of each section is an activity or nursery rhyme that you can do with your baby. Babies love to engage with you and enjoy stories, songs and puppetry. Most of all, they will love having your complete attention as you explore the book together.
Nothing is very complicated and its supposed to be fun too – some babies even make up their own signs as they become more confident!
This beautifully illustrated guide to baby signing has been produced in conjunction with experienced baby signing teachers at Little Signers Club and leading British Sign Language author, Cath Smith.
With first signs, engaging pictures, tips and exercises, this book will quickly and simply show you and your baby how to communicate through sign language.
