Good beginning book Jun 7, 2008
I have some beginner signing knowledge and needed to brush up my skills for my baby. This covers a small amount of signs and is a good place to start. Bargin priced at $5, it's a good affordable start for someone who is interested in beginning sign language with their baby.
Basic overview of baby signing Apr 18, 2008
This is a pretty good book. I was hoping for a little less discussion of why baby signing was "ok" and a little more in the way of examples and pictures, but overall this has been a helpful book.

This book is Wonderful! It cleared questions up and answered even more than what I had thought of, but was later faced with from family and friends.
Baby Signs was written for parents of hearing babies who want to improve communication with their children who can not yet speak. Just what I was looking for.

Wow- good information Mar 4, 2008
This was a really interesting read. I read it, my husband read it, and even big-sister-to-be read it. We all were very impressed with this book as an introduction to baby signs and are looking forward to communicating with our baby using some of the signs. Although this is not my first child, I did not know about baby signs before. I'm interested in seeing how much better we will be able to communicate using some of the tips and techniques in the book.
Babies can communicate before they can talk! Feb 9, 2008
Great book! We used this for my second child. She didn't seem as frustrated as my first child because she could let us know what she wanted before she could talk! I was very impressed with this book. I wasn't sure that it would work at first, but it did. She caught on. It was so fun to see her make some of the cute little signs. She could tell us when she wanted more to eat and things like that.
