Every parent knows how frustrated babies become when they can't properly express themselves. Now, before they're able to speak, they can tell you what they mean, with signs!
Signing has taken the parenting world by storm. Why? Every parent is eager to give their baby the best possible upbringing, the least frustration, and the best head start for achieving in today's competitive society. Research (funded by the National Institutes of Health) has found the following about babies who sign also:
- Learn to speak sooner
- Have larger vocabularies
- Have stronger bonds with their parents
- Experience less frustration
- Show more interest in books
- Engage in more sophisticated play
- Have higher IQ scores
Teach Your Baby to Sign features photographs of the 200 most useful signs--more than any other book on the market--and also features stage-by-stage guidance, so you'll know which signs to teach first and which to add your baby progresses.
