Product Description

Review

"'Nurseries in Britain are about to be swept by the new craze of baby signing' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003; 'The practice is becoming popular among parents in America. In some states, such as Florida, it is commonplace. Now it has come to Britain, with classes and seminars being held to teach the technique. Informal mothers' groups are meeting weekly to spread the message and practice the gestures...' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003"

About the Author

Monta Briant began signing with her daughter when she was six months old. The family eventually learned hundreds of signs together and Monta was so moved by the ability to communicate effectively with her daughter that she found herself telling it to anyone who would listen! She soon started Baby Sign Language Workshops and is an enthusiastic speaker and self-proclaimed 'baby sign language evangelist'.

First Sentence
My then-ten-month-old daughter, Sirena, had always been easy to put to bed, so when she clung to me and cried one warm night, I wondered what could be wrong. Read the first page

This is a great introduction to signing for babies, and my son is already fascinated by the signs after just a few days. The drawback is that it is in ASL, which is only a problem if you intend your baby to be able to communicate with British Deaf users, or to go on to learn adult British sign language as a second language as I understand that BSL and ASL are very different. I have been unable to find a baby signing book using BSL.
A second slightly irritating point is that although the author puts in bold, throughout the text, words which can be usefully signed, she does not then include all of them in the dictionary section. Only 60 signs are included here, which I quickly found frustrating as she omits words like 'book' and other baby essentials. She suggests buying a separate ASL dictionary, which, in fact you will need very soon, if you start signing a lot.
Overall, though, this is a brilliant start to signing, and comes in a handy 'changing bag sized' format (about the size of many of the tiny baby board books).

Looks like a good book if you are expecting to use ASL and not BSL. Unfortunately the review does not tell you this, so I made the mistake of buying this and not a British signing book!

Good book. It teaches you to communicate with your baby before it can talk. No good if it is with a minder all day. Great if you with the baby most of the time. They learn the signs too and communicate back.
