I can't recommend this DVD enough. If you're interested in learning Makaton signing (which is what most baby-signing is based on), this DVD is both clear and comprehensive. The songs are well chosen, a mixture of old favourites and ones that I'd not come across before, the signing is clear to follow, but detailed enough that you're bound to pick up new signs and expand your vocabluary. My 2 year old son (who signs like a pro)loves it, as do my two older children who learn the signs so they can sing along with him.
The ladies who sing the songs are engaging and have pleasant voices... you'll find yourself humming them long after the DVD has finished. 'Something Special' fans may recognise them from their appearances on the show.
My son and I have had the pleasure of doing quite a few singing sessions with them in person as they visit Great Ormond Street hospital weekly. They are just as lovely in person as they come across on the DVD.
All round a great DVD jam packed with songs, engaging both for able and disabled children.
