Product Description

Product Description

A Picture Dictionary using over 200 Signs by Rollo Bear! The Signs include Everyday Signs, The Alphabet, Colours, Numbers and Days of the Week.

Kiddisign had extensive media coverage in 2009 in the UK, Ireland and USA after highlighting the use of sign language to assist babies and children of any age to communicate if they are ill, what their needs are and what they are experiencing around them.

Rollo Bear was the first signing book to use a fun bear to teach in this way. Kiddisign Books have produced their new teaching bear to make signing with your baby/infant, fun and easy to learn.

They have free practice sheets on their website which you can use with the book and a free video of babies using sign language to aid communication of specific needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, Informative and Fun! 13 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I considered learning baby sign language when my son was born, but I didn't really know much about it, so decided not to pursue it. I should have read this book first. It is not unnecessarily long, which I appreciated - when you've got a busy baby on your hands, who wants to read a lengthy instructional book? There is a small but adequate amount of information about the concept of baby sign language at the beginning, so it gives the reader an overview of what it's all about without going too in-depth. But what I liked the best were the bears - the author uses cartoon pictures of bears to show basic communication signing that babies commonly use to express their wants. By using the bears rather than just a simple drawing of a hand, it acts as a reminder to the reader of why he or she is taking the time to learn simple sign language - for their child's sake. Even though my son is now five, those bears still kept me turning the pages to try out all the different signing commands. Innovative and fun. I definitely recommend it!

I teach young learners English as a second language.
After reading Baby Signing with Rollo Bear, I can teach my groups of pre-learners, starters and young learner all the basic building blocks: the alphabet, colors, days of the week...with signing to bridge the language barrier and to help accelerate classroom learning. This book gives me materials. I can adapt for the bear puppet, I already use in class to help elicit speech from the students. Now Rollo has taught my bear new tricks. Baby signing is a new tool for the classroom. And also at home with my granddaughters. They are at that age between baby and school where they have a frustrating time communicating their thoughts and needs. For a parent (or grandparent) and child to be able to communicate well, creates a bonding experience. Children who have their needs met are less frustrated, cry less and have accelerated verbal language skills and show an interest in books from an early age.

Baby signing With Rollo Bear should be included with the gift products sample packs given to mothers of newborns in the hospital. And included in kindergarten training programs. And as a coursebook and reference book for ESL teachers. Of all the resources for young children I have read this year, this would be my must read choice. A brilliant book, well written, beautifully illustrated. I highly recommend it to all Mum's dad's grandparents, teachers and caregivers of children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Signing with Rollo 6 Feb 2011
By JB
Format:Paperback
I had seen something on TV about babies learning to sign, so I got this book as a gift for my friend and her one year old.

We found the illustrations easy to follow and the book easy to use. Baby liked Rollo Bear, and with a bit of practice, he managed to understand where this was all going! We were surprised and delighted that he has started to sign for `drinks' and `biscuits' so far. Mum has downloaded the free nursery rhymes from the website, which helps Baby to learn more signs, and both of them continue bonding and learning together. I really would like to say that overall,Baby Signing by Kiddisign - British Version is a cute book; its engaging to work with and a very worthwhile buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear signs 28 Feb 2011
By Feebs
Format:Paperback
Absolutely adore this bear. This book is making it really easy for us to learn with our baby. Quite enjoyed using the downloads on their website. You can learn a few signs then do the song so it makes you remember them more easily.

We love using this book - very easy to use, clear signs and instructions and free downloads from Kiddisign's website for the nursery rhymes to practice. They also have a free signing video online so you can see it in reality before you start. A really good buy.

This is a lovely looking book. The majority of pictures make the sign quite obvious, but also there are many I don't 'get'. Read more
