Teach Your Baby to Sign : An Illustrated Guide to Simple Sign Language for Babies (Paperback) (Monica
About this item
You can hear -- your baby can hear -- so whatÆs the deal? Every parent knows how frustrated -- how enraged -- babies become when they canÆt make themselves clear to their families. But now, before they can talk, they can tell you what they mean -- with signs!
Signing has taken the parenting world by storm. Why? Every parent is eager to give their baby the best possible upbringing, the least frustration, and the best head start for achieving in todayÆs driven, competitive society. Research (funded by the National Institutes of Health) has found that signing babies: talk sooner and have larger vocabularies; have stronger parent/child bonds; have less frustration, crying and tantrums; show more interest in books; engage in more sophisticated play; and have higher IQ scores. Now, what parent doesnÆt want that?
Baby signing has been featured on Dateline and Oprah. Teach Your Baby to Sign features photographs of babies signing, plus line illustrations of each sign. And it provides 200 useful signs -- more than any other book -- so parents can have a wide selection to choose from, along with stage-by-stage guidance so theyÆll know which signs to teach first and which to add as they and their baby become progressively more skilled and comfortable with signing.
