I went ahead and still used the book for baby storytime, but demonstrated the correct signs to the grown-ups as we went over each word. We have 2 copies of this board book available to check out, but I plan to look for a more accurate board book to order instead.
My First Baby Signs
Oct 06, Amelia rated it it was ok Shelves: I so wanted this to be good That said, we still use many of these signs especially more, all done and sleepy even though my daughter is now verbal, so the choice of signs included is pretty reasonable.
May 27, jacky rated it liked it Recommends it for: Natalie really likes my computer, so we sometimes read books on line at We Give Books. We were starting to run out of choices, so we read this one even though it is about signs and we don't sign. We just enjoyed the illustrations instead. From what I recall having read this awhile ago, it did have good instructions on how to do the signs. Apr 10, Joshua's Mom rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Both my kids have loved this book.
It is a great way to reinforce the signs and make them fun. Illustrations are sweet and simple. I really don't like how it shows the baby throwing his bowl of food when he signs all done.
Not exactly something I want to teach to my kids. I would have loved a few more signs in it. Jan 05, Eric Moote rated it really liked it Shelves: I took a year of ASL in college, so I'm a huge fan of communicating non verbally.
This book has thirteen basic and useful signs for non verbal children and parents alike. I would recommend this book to: View 1 comment. May 05, Kaethe Douglas rated it it was amazing Shelves: When the Possum was born I taught her some sign language. Just everyday around the house sorts of things. It was a relief for both of us when she could communicate. I wanted to publish a board book of signs. Anyway, this is what I would have liked to have done.
Jul 10, Kathleen rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is the book to get if you want to teach your baby sign language. It keeps it so simple and includes only the most important signs. I found so many of the other sign language books to be overwhelming and confusing.

Great book for toddlers to assist in learning sign language! Aug 30, Dana Robinson rated it it was ok. Does not represent the signs well. There are much better books for baby sign language. Mar 03, Tdavis rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Baby - Preschool. Sign language is building vocabulary! Great board book with very clear pictured descriptions of signs. Early Literacy Skills: Print Motivation Vocabulary. Sep 07, Amie rated it liked it Shelves: Some of the signs aren't ASL.
Jun 12, Nichole Davis rated it really liked it.
It's a great jumping off place to start teaching babies Sign. It has common signs that they will use everyday. Nov 02, Cheryl rated it liked it Shelves: This is a cute book for very young children, but if you're interested in the sign language, I'd say it's better to get a video.
It also goes over different types of signs, ASL and baby friendly, and discusses the pros and cons of each. Finally, it goes ove Baby Signs is half argument for the utility of teaching pre-verbal babies everyday signs and half resource for how to actually accomplish said teaching.
Baby Signs Storytime
Finally, it goes over how to introduce basic signs for everyday interactions, as well as how sign language can be used through toddlerhood and alongside spoken language acquisition. The book ends with a visual dictionary of useful signs, both ASL and baby-friendly, as well as a short but useful bibliography.
If you are already planning to sign with your child, I recommend that you skip to the nitty gritty: the chapter about easy signs relating to everyday activities, such as eating and bedtime, and the signs dictionary at the end. Better yet, invest in a good dictionary of signs, instead. The first half of the book focused mainly on why signing is important and not until 40 something pages in does it show how to teach the signs.
Point to the object when This book provides a more robust introduction to baby sign language than a book I previously reviewed on this topic, Sign with Your Baby: Point to the object when possible[return][return] 5.

But I'm finding the Baby Hands Productions video dictionary of signs more helpful than illustrations anyway. The authors recommend the "Baby Signs Video for Babies" as a way to teach babies more signs, then go on to say: However, chosen carefully, videos produced specifically for babies and toddlers can be beneficial.
I've never come across any research indicating that TV watching by babies and toddlers has any lasting positive effects. In fact, I read the opposite in Endangered Minds: Apr 18, Hilary rated it liked it Shelves: Interesting to learn about what babies want to talk about.: Not just what they want to eat or whether their diaper is dirty, but also the things that they see in the world around them.
It's also useful to teach babies about safety signs and ways to describe when they are sick, when something is too hot to touch, etc.
One thing is that the book totally didn't mention was teaching politeness, etc. I think that baby sign language could also be a valuable way to teach children about please and thank Interesting to learn about what babies want to talk about.: I think that baby sign language could also be a valuable way to teach children about please and thank you before they can talk.
I agree with other reviewers who think that this book is more about why you should use baby sign language rather than how you should teach it — although the authors claim that it's simple to introduce as a part of your everyday life and therefore doesn't need much tutorial into how to introduce it.
We'll see whether that's true or not when my baby is old enough to try sign language. However, I totally disagree with the reviewers who say that the book should teach American sign language rather than a babyfied version. The criticism is patently ridiculous. ASL is its own language. Parents are unlikely to be able to learn it, with all its grammar, vocabulary, and nuances, well enough to teach their children true ASL.
When To Teach Baby Sign Language
Indeed, the goal isn't for children to be bilingual in English and ASL; it's for children to be able to communicate before they can form words with their mouths and vocal chords. Would these parents refuse to accept their children's communication if they said baba instead of bottle? Many of the signs in this book are taken from ASL, while others have been created or modified to be easy for children with immature coordination to make, and that are easy for parents and babies to remember.
I can see how they would provide a valuable bridge between children with no means to communicate and spoken English. Mar 03, Amber rated it did not like it. There is not a description for how horrible i thought this book was!
I thought about buying from the library so that no one else would borrow it. The authors of this book encourage parents to just make up any old thing as a sign, as long as you and your baby can understand each other. It describes the author's own homesigns, and they even include a dictionary in the back of the very limited signs they've made up This is a bad thing becaus There is not a description for how horrible i thought this book was!
This is a bad thing because as a parent it's not all that hard to figure out what my baby wants. What I want is for my baby to learn to comminucate with others becides me. She needs to know how to let her babysitters know that she's hungry, or even communicate with other babies who can sign.
It is actually easier to get a signing dictionary and look up the actual real sign and the two of you can learn that. Most ASL signs make sense.
And it's a real language- what these authors have done is basically taken baby babble and turned it into an acceptable communication style.
Would you let your baby continue to say "ba-ba-ga-ga" for apple?
My First Baby Signs
If you knew what she meant, you'd say "oh you want an apple. You don't teach your household, babysitters and friends to say ba-ba-ga-ga instead of apple. I couldn't believe what I was reading. Steer clear of this one! View 1 comment. Jan 07, Sarah rated it really liked it. Easy to read, clear, concise with a nice introduction explaining the benefits of signing.
A fast read that I recommend to parents to help avoid those frustration tantrums. Who wouldn't be frustrated when you want the Christmas tree lights turned on and instead your parent keeps giving you Cheerios or handing you different ornaments?
I have only recently begun signing with regularity to my son 14 months i Easy to read, clear, concise with a nice introduction explaining the benefits of signing.
I have only recently begun signing with regularity to my son 14 months in the past couple of weeks, with my husband and the grandma's on board, and have just this week seen him use a couple of signs "more" and "all done". It's very exciting for me and I think it's exciting for him too! He's also started to say mama and dada discriminately the past couple of days, so I think it's also helped him with spoken language already. He's the kind of kid who seems to want to be able to do something right when he does it, so he doesn't really attempt anything until he's sure he's got it down.
I have a feeling that in another couple of weeks, he'll suddenly be "talking" up a storm. I only wish I had gotten started earlier although I'm probably seeing such quick results because we're starting when he's older. May 12, Shira and Ari Evergreen rated it really liked it Recommends it for: This book is awesome.
It's full of clear instructions and useful diagrams and photos showing how to use symbolic gestures to communicate with your baby before your baby can use spoken language.
This speeds spoken language acquisition, increases bonding between parent and child, builds self-esteem and self-confidence, and helps prevent a lot of frustration and stress. It's not a very vegan-friendly book, but the authors appear to be sensitive to other issues and they encourage families to make up This book is awesome. It's not a very vegan-friendly book, but the authors appear to be sensitive to other issues and they encourage families to make up their own signs, so this didn't keep me from liking their message generally.
Baby Signs has an interesting relationship with ASL - it borrows some signs and replaces others with easier-to-make, more literally symbolic signs that the authors say will be easier for babies to learn and use. They view Baby Signs as a stepping stone toward spoken language and note that most children abandon their signs when they learn enough spoken words to use instead.
I wonder if children would perhaps be better served by learning ASL, a second language that could be of lasting use. Besides these quibbles I loved the book. Everyone should read it - we'd all have a lot more respect for babies and their abilities!
Aug 05, Skylar Burris rated it liked it Shelves: I asked for this book years ago, back when my first child was a baby, because I wanted to try Baby Sign Language. The book was helpful in that it gave me some basics to work with, and my daughter was able to tell me, beginning at about nine months, when she wanted "more" or was "hungry" or wanted "milk. I started a bit early and the lack of pay-off perhaps discouraged me, as this book warned it might.
I'd suggest not starting until 9 or I asked for this book years ago, back when my first child was a baby, because I wanted to try Baby Sign Language. I'd suggest not starting until 9 or 10 months.
On the other hand, I didn't bother at all with signs for my second child, and he spoke more clearly sooner. Though it provides some basic help, most of the book reads like an infomercial, complete with testimonials and much redundant information.
If you're picking up this book, you probably have already decided to try signing and you probably don't need to be convinced. More time spent illustrating the signs with multiple pictures for a single sign and the inclusion of more signs where's balloon, for instance?
I also would have liked to have seen the ASL signs for each word, in addition to the baby signs. ASL signs are given for only about half the words--the rest are invented baby signs. Feb 22, Rosa rated it liked it Recommends it for: This idea intrigued me because I loved how it allowed us to communicate aside from basic gestures and body language with our baby before she could talk.
So, I read this book to learn how to do it. Rachel our first child learned over 70 signs and I believe they helped her learn to talk faster because she loved to communicate with us.
She is 2 years old now and speaks in complete sentences. Her signing started to fizzle out around 18 months because by that time she could pretty much say all This idea intrigued me because I loved how it allowed us to communicate aside from basic gestures and body language with our baby before she could talk.
Her signing started to fizzle out around 18 months because by that time she could pretty much say all these words so she didn't need the signs anymore.
However, we know she still remembers them because we asked her if she wants to help Michael our 5 month old learn Baby Signs so he can "talk" to us and she was happy to jump on board. As we've watched her sign to her brother, it's evident that she hasn't forgotten those first "words" she learned so long ago. Dec 02, Pete rated it it was amazing Shelves:Jul 07, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: No trivia or quizzes yet.
Imagine if your 6 month old told you she wanted to nurse without crying, or your 11 month old told you he saw a dog across the street without grunting, or your 14 month old told you the sidewalk was too hot for her bare feet without screaming! Jul 28, Shauna rated it it was amazing. Refresh and try again. Just point to a sign in the book, say the word while making the sign, and the baby will soon be signing.
We'll see whether that's true or not when my baby is old enough to try sign language. Not my favorite.
