Parents who use sign language with their babies know the many benefits it offers. Using baby sign language can boost a child’s language skills and helps the parent understand what her baby wants and needs- with much less frustration.
There are many books that teach you how to introduce sign language to your baby or toddler, but if you’re looking for a really great beginning book for this subject, try Sabuda & Reinhart Baby Signs Pop-Up Book.
“BABY SIGNS” Pop Up Book Synopsis:
BABY SIGNS is based on American Sign Language and will help encourage the use of non-verbal gestures to communicate. Research has proven that babies who are taught to use signs to express their basic ideas before they can say words are happier because they can communicate with others.
From early morning wake-up to eating, playtime to bedtime, BABY SIGNS will teach baby and parent their first seventeen signs to communicate with each other. Features beautiful pop-ups, pull-tabs and a mini-poster!
I love that this book is very simple to use. The bright and colorful pop-ups and pull-tabs are a fun way for babies to learn how to perform the various signs introduced in the book. This book provides you, the parent or teacher, the basic tools you need to teach your baby basic sign language to help her communicate with you better. Examples of baby signs introduced in this book are: eat (Place closed fingertips to lips), hurt (Touch index fingers together over painful area), and Mommy (Spread fingers, tap thumb on chin). I highly recommend this book!
