A Fun and Simple Guide to Early Communication
by Mary Smith
I recently met someone who had taught a baby sign language. It seemed like an effective communication method for this very happy one.
Want to give it a try or give this book to a new parent? Inside its pages is an excellent guide to this early communication system that helps kids to communicate before they can speak. Included are sections on signs for mealtime daytime, playtime, family, feelings, the outdoors and more.
The book begins with a most helpful first chapter. It offers guidance on when to start signing and things to consider before beginning. There is also the rationale for using signs with young ones.
This book is amply illustrated with children signing the words. There are additional illustrations to help when learning.
Take a look at this one. I wish that there had been more known about signing when my kids where young. It doesn’t replace speaking to babies but offers such a helpful adjunct.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.
