38) Teaching Your Baby to Sign by Laura Heller

on March 1, 2012

Heller, Laura. Teaching Your Baby to Sign. Baby Fingers All Day Long, 2008. 23 pages. ISBN: 978-1-40275545.

Introduce sign language to your baby and enhance language development and speech before children are ready to talk. This little board book is full of beautiful photographs of toddlers who perform the hand motions using American Sign Language. Learn how to sign single words: “eat” “drink,” “more,” “book,” “play” and more. A single word is printed in color against a white background for easy reading. There are instructions at the bottom of each page, highlighted in different colors, that explain exactly how to place fingers for signing—for “book,” “…with flat hands, touch both palms together and open them as if you’re opening a book”. Parents and children will develop a routine way of communicating that is fun and easy. Children will be attracted to the photographs of other children and will want to learn how to sign.  (Board Book 1-4). No author/illustrator website.
