Have you noticed how easily babies learn to wave 'bye-bye', shake their heads for no and nod for yes? These are the most simple forms of Baby Signs which enable babies to communicate effectively before they are able to say the word. Unfortunately most parents never realise their baby's potential for learning other gestures that make it possible for parents to interact with their child in ways that would otherwise have been impossible until thier baby could talk. The authors have spent more than a decade researching and studying the effects of Baby Signs on infant communication and the results have been overwhelming.
Not only do parents gain a much greater understanding of their children and their needs but babies develop skills that enrich their comprehension of language. In BABY SIGNS, the author provide parents with a fun and simple programme for teaching children Baby Signs at home. It includes easy to follow illustrated signs and photographs as well as popular nursery rhymes and stories with signs, allowing infants to reach out and forge bonds of affection and satisfaction that will last a lifetime.
